Osceola Powell, Seminole Chief

Osceola Powell print

The News Times in Fair Bluff, NC recently ran an article about Osceola, a Seminole Indian Chief who was born to a Creek or Waccamaw mother.  His white name was either John or Billy Powell, depending on who is telling the story, and he is often referred to as Osceola Powell.  Bob Morgan researches Osceola and turns to the Powell family historian for more information.

I want to say a special thanks to Stevie, one of our subscribers for sending me this story, and for his assistance in obtaining permission to print.  I also want to thank Allen Turner at The News Times/The News Reporter in Chadbourne, NC for his permission to reprint.
