Re Linda's "Back to Thomas Harrell. Who was he? Was he related to Housen Harrell born 12/20/1747 Bedford Co., VA and died 1809 Rutherford Co., NC. Or was he related to James Harrell with a will dated 9/20/1756 Prince William Co., VA. James Harrell's widow, Mary on 6/23/1763 appeared at the Fauquier Co., VA Court and asked the Court to name Capt. HOWSON KENNER or her son Daniel Harrell as Administrators of her husband, James' Estate as she was "old and crazy"."
I should have added that Thomas Harrell d 1763 Edgecombe was in no way related to the Harrells of Bedford, Fauquier, and Prince William VA. He was a descendant of the immigrant Thomas Harrell (1609 - after 1662) of Nansemond (now Suffolk City) VA, at the NC border, which was in Upper (ie southern) Norfolk VA when he arrived in 1635 as a headright of Robert Bennett.
