    The author of reference (18) has a letter written by Harry Eugene Brown
    (RIN 1645) to an unknown person giving some information about his grandmother,
    Mary Jane (Power) Brown (RIN 1530). The letter was dated 16 OCT 1987, and said
    in part, "She could remember her dad (William D. Power, RIN 1527) coming home
    from the Civil War. She knew all about Sherman's march to the sea and the
    burning of Atlanta. The name of Mr. Power (her father) was originally De Pouor
    but changed to Power in this country or maybe Ireland. (There is) Some indi-
    cation that Power's dad was born in Normandy and that these people were de-
    scended from Normans from Scandanavia."
