Hannah A. Yount (1845-1891), daughter of Frederick Yount and Polly Mayfield, was my 3rd great grand aunt. I've only just begun dipping my toe into the waters of her short life history. My first post connected to her is really about her husband. My 3rd great grand uncle was named Powhatan V. Rauls (1849-1922). At least that is how I think his name was spelled. I've already seen Powhauttan, Powhattan, Pauhatton, Pawhatton, Pawhattan, Pohatan, and Powhatton. Less ambitious folks usually went with "P. V." And don't forget Rawls and Ralls.
P. V. was born in Tennessee, so knowledge of the tribe(s) is not a stretch. But I still wonder what caused P. V.'s parents, John and Sarah, to name him Powhatan? I certainly would love to know!
