Early life

  • Dubose has him riding into Alabama in 1818, as a four year old. I'll assume that's an error. --Dystopos 21:46, 22 February 2007 (PST)

Powell Avenue

  • I assume that Powell Avenue was named in his honor, as president of Elyton Land Company and Mayor of Birmingham, in the same manner as Morris Avenue was named for Powell's partner Josiah Morris. I am working on the article for Powell Avenue and will include a link to this article unless I can find another source stating that Powell Avenue was named for someone else. --Wheresdib 09:44, 28 December 2007 (PST)
  • I believe you're correct. --Dystopos 10:17, 28 December 2007 (PST)
