Hartwell Norman is my direct ancestor, my 4th great grandfather. This is the first I've found someone else looking into Hartwell (aka HH on many records I've found) and his line. I stopped working on this line a few months ago after exhausting what I could find online and was pleasantly surprised to find a new post on here. From what I can piece together, and there is a lot of evidence to support it, HH's parents were Eli Norman and Lucy Unknown. The line from Eli back is pretty well documented; there's a lot of information on ancestry.com and a good google search will provide more as well. HH was only married once to Elizabeth Walker in 1841, that record is available on familysearch.org for free as well as ancestry. Many of his children have unusual names so that helps when tracking them. His son Absolam is where my line comes from, he married a Lytha Cox. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, feel free to contact me if I can answer any questions or be of help.
