Michael Powell, born c1841, came from Clare, Ireland, the son of Peter Powell and Johanna Lahiff.

He married 8th August, 1896 at St. Patricks, Boorowa, NSW, at age 55, to Mary Ann Boyd nee Delaney. Mary Ann had previously married James Boyd at Blakneys Creek in 1862 and subsequently lived as a common law wife with James Hendry, with whom she had a large family. For further details on this section of history, go to the BOYD HISTORY or the HENDRY HISTORY.

Michaell Powell and Mary Ann registered a son, Francis William Powell, born 7th October, 1885 at Murringo, NSW.

Mary Ann Delaney/Boyd/Powell had a son named Thomas, in 1882. He was registered as the son of James Hendry and Mary Ann Delaney, but at the time of his marriage to Rubie May Fisher in 1915 at Young NSW, his name is given as Thomas Powell, so it would appear that he had assumed the surname of his step-father Michael Powell.

At the time of the marriage of Michael Powell and Mary Ann Boyd nee Delaney, Michael was 55 and a labourer by occupation, and Mary Ann was a washer woman aged 51.

Thomas Powell and Ruby Fisher had a daughter, Mary E Powell, born 1915 at Young, NSW and possibly a son Fred Powell as on the death certificate of Francis William Powell, the witness was F. Powell, nephew, of the Hibernian Hotel, Goulburn. Oral family history reports the existence of a Fred Powell, son of Thomas Powell.
Thomas and Ruby divorced 25th October, 1932

Francis William Powell never married and died at Mercy Hospital, Young NSW on 18th June 1968. A grandaughter of his half-brother Michael Hendry described Frank as a very kindly man who loved animals.

Michael Powell died on 1st November 1901 and was buried in the Murringo cemetery.

Mary Ann Powell nee Delaney died on 11th September 1929 at Murringo and was buried in the Roman Catholic section of Murringo cemetery beside Michael Powell on 13th September, 1929.
