I am trying to determine if Eliza Harrell born between 1827-1837 in Darlington Co., S.C., daughter of Mathew Harrell and Cassa Beasley is the same person as my wife's great grandmother, Eliza Luther Sanders. I have bits of documentation that suggest they are the same person.
Information I've recently discovered on various web site and forums list Mathew's parents as Lewis Harrell and Sarah Perkins; his grandparents as Jacob Harrell and Mary Peacock??? and his great grandparents as Francis Harrell and Mary Benton.
Mathew and Cassa Beasley's children were Eliza A, Sarah A, C.B., I.B., Elizabeth, William S, Milley, Leonara and Stephen Fletcher Harrell.Stephen Fletcher Harrell died in Kirk, Limestone Co., Texas as did Martin Sanders.
Mathew reportedly moved to Mississippi after the 1850 census. My wife's great grandfather, Martin Sanders, married Eliza Luther in Chickasaw Co, MS. His bondsman at the wedding was a Mathew Harrell. Martin and Eliza's first son, my wife's grandfather,was named Mathew. The Sanders family left MS for Texas and are listed in the 1870 census for Collin Co., Texas.
Can anyone provide information that would confirm that Eliza Harrell and Eliza Luther were the same person?
