My family begins with Jesse Harrell whom. Rosannah Rushing on January 30, 1831 in Montgomery, AL.Jesse is as far back as we can go right now.He was born between 1796 and 1800.All of the census records state NC but then again it says the same thing about Rosannah and we found out that she was born in St. Peter's Parish in Beaufort, S. C.
Jesse and Rosannah had 15 kids (listed below).They all lived and they all attended school

I am writing to the SHELBY Genealogy Board because I have found some bits and pieces about a George E. Harrell who lived in Shelby.He married a woman named L. J. Wyatt on 1/8/1861.Also in Shelby is an Eli Harrell and a Samuel Harrell.This Samuel married an Elizabeth Shirley.I am trying to determine if these three are the same as my three with the same name.
If there is anyone who can help me, I would appreciate it.What I am looking for is a copy of the marriage license of George E. and L. J. Wyatt or any other information that might tell me that George's father's name was Jesse and that his mother's name was Rosannah Rushing.Is there anyone out their who could help me get a copy of this license.I am willing to pay for this license (if it is not outrageously expensive).
