Benjaman's School Years

Not open for further replies.
I haven't been around lately and just dropping in here now. I was wondering if anyone here looked through the pictures I posted (I know they are small but they do have names next to them) from the 1965 Ben Davis High School (in Indianapolis, Indiana) yearbook (link below). There is a Neil Powell listed as a junior in that school. I am wondering if anyone has tried to trace/follow his line/link to the POWELL surname?

I uploaded photos of the juniors from the Ben Davis High School (Indianapolis, Indiana) Yearbook to my Picasa Web Album found here: http://picasaweb.google.com/RKnowle...hotos?authkey=l5M9Oz-YoKw#5288373807844477522.

I thought some of you would want to look and see if there are any students you think resemble Benjaman. If there are some that need further research then we could compare notes, etc.

If someone here has the time, could you check the link above and see if it works for you, please? I am not certain if I need to make it published in order for others to view the photos or if it will work for others at the link I provided. Thanks!

I am doing the happy dance that you are bbaaaaackkkk!!!!:woohoo:

I have not seen the Powell picture yet but what jumps out IMMEDIATELY on the first page of photos is two students with the last name of Benjamin....back to looking
 
It's good to be back :) There is another POWELL (female) in the same class. I wonder if they could be twins.

Ben Davis High School was named after Benjamin Davis. I wonder if the students may have been known as a "Benja man" or something similar to that.


ETA: Ben Davis High School alumni have a Facebook page found here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=304042290474#/group.php?gid=304042290474

I am concentrating on Benjaman's ears-the tops of his ears are close to his head as opposed to curving outwards like most. Then his earlobes are specifically shaped. Even Neil Powell's ears curve outward from his head unlike BK's.

Am I just insane now from years of looking at pictures or do you guys get what I am focusing on???
 
I'm not so sure about age. I believe he could be as young as 46. Either way he is one handsome man.

=============================

Don't worry, I feel a little insane at times too.
Too many pictures, earlobes, eyebrows, noses.
 
I found a Neil Powell born in KY in 1948. Not finding much else on ancestry, but will dig deeper. On MyLife.com there is a Neil E. Powell listed in Indianapolis, with family members of Dawna and KYLE. There is also a Neil R. Powell listed in Beech Grove, IN with relatives of Phyllis and Daniel Powell. I will dig deeper!


Edit: Ok--the Neil E Powell from Indianapolis is the same one born in KY. He was born (I believe) in Mar 1948, and married Dawna in KY in 1976. The marriage record states that he had been married before. There is also a Neil E Powell born Mar 1948 who lived in Austin, TX as of 1993. Still digging...
