1st thanks for correcting what someone had told my about Peter Carrell, where & when he was born & married. I'm trying to replace my misinformation with stuff that can be proved, so I appreciate you telling me it came from a census and such. You also mention "Page 87 of "The Heritage of Davidson County 1982," published by The Genealogical Society of Davidson County, Lexington, NC, is about Peter Carrell. It gives the name of his parents, grandparents and great grandfather. It was written by Robert C. Carroll and gives as his sources: Family Bible, Davidson Co. Court records; Rowan Co. records, Orange Co. records, Cem. records & personal knowledge."...Could I get that info?, that is if you have it easy assessable. Also your cousin who is a g-g granddaughter of Peter Carrell and Mary Bean does she live in Howell co. or know any history about the Hickeys.
