Regarding Powell WW I Memorial. E.A. France is the namesake, honored by the local American Legion Post. H.Pheneger's tombstone is nearby, listing him as a member of Co.A 23rd U.S.I. From tombstones, it can be concluded that Pheneger and Thomas were brother-in-laws. It is not clear if bodies were returned from France, or if these monuments stand over empty graves.
