Ed RobbensJSTOR Global Plants "Powell, Thomas (1809-1887)" - Death Year Incorrect. Additional information: In their catalogue of his work, the SOAS University of London give Powell's date of birth as 1817.

Powell recorded the beliefs of the indigenous people of Samoa before they became diluted by the work of the missionaries. In the article a reference is made to these being folk "myths" and today this word is often associated with untruths. Thomas Powell used the word "legends" and perhaps this word would be more appropriate than myths.

Powell's year of birth was 1817 and not 1809. References for this include death notice in newspapers, gravestone, and a paper prepared by Karen v. Armstrong, Ph.D. (Universiity of Helsinki) page 27. Titled “A Time Line of Missionaries Events and Buildings on Tutuila Samoa, 1830-1910” see http://ashpo.com/downloads/TutuilaMission1910.pdf. Gravestone can be seen at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=powell&GSfn=thomas&GSbyrel=all&GSdy=1887&GSdyrel=in&GScntry=5&GSob=n&GRid=65137625&df=all& Register of deaths with his names and age can be seen at https://www.flickr.com/photos/sidpickle/23244182584/in/dateposted-public/ The confusion probably came about due to another author - Thomas Powell(1809-1887) - who lived in London but moved to America in about 1849. He wrote poems and plays and moved into journalism in later life. He is probably best remembered for his dispute with Charles Dickens.Powell, Thomas (1809-1887) · 1 month(s) ago JoanneMcKeon Funeral Home in the Bronx has a book of memories open for condolences to the family and share memories of his living. http://mckeonfuneralhome.com/book-of-memories/2272131/Proctor-George/view-condolences.phpProctor, George Richardson (1920-) · 3 month(s) ago basevinAnn Stafford Ann Stafford firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> Ann, Just got the message below a few minutes ago from a person on JSTOR.
