Walter Powers & Trial Shepard

Descendants of Walter Powers & Trial Shepherd, included my double cousin (on the Rice and Johnson lines), the late Constance Brinley Butterfield*.

*Constance Beverly Brinly, daughter of 
Lola Dee Rice & Charles T. Brinly, daughter of 
Charles Logan Rice & Mary Josephine Johnson, son of 
Mary Jane Davis & Arthur Lemuel Rice, daughter of
James Davis & Amanda Grimes, son of
 Lydia Harwood & Nathaniel Davis, daughter of 
Mary Powers & John Harwood, daughter of 
Isaac Powers & Mary Poulter, son of 
Walter Powers and Trial Shepard

Abigail Powers, wife of President Millard Fillmore was a descendant of Walter and Trial (Shepherd) Powers, according to this.

The twentieth century biographical dictionary of notable Americans ...named Horace Henry Powers, a Representative from Vermont, and Llewellyn Powers, a Governor of Maine, as fellow descendants of Walter and Trial Powers.

Though my maiden name was Powers, I am not a descendant of Walter & Trial Powers.
