The death certificate for Hannah Powers' daughter, Frances Amelia Edson, indicates that her mother's name was Hannah Holcomb. Since Hannah died young, at age 40, and before her husband, a later marriage is unlikely. Another possibility is that Hannah's mother, Rachel Cutter, may have survived Asa Powers, remarried a Holcomb, and thus her maiden name may have been thought to have been Rachel Holcomb, and that name also attributed to Hannah as her maiden name when the death certificate was completed. The "Chronicles" appear to be specific that Hannah Powers was the daughter of Asa Powers and Rachel Cutter.spouse: >Bement, Harrison Barnes (1813 - 1863)
