This is my first time on this forum.My end-of-line ancestor on this line was Joseph Druell/Drusel/Druell/ Drewell.He appeared in the 1850 and 1860 Greene Co., Arkansas censuses and in the 1870 Dunklin County, Missouri census.I am descended from his daughter Nancy C. Drewell, who married George W. Dial, then William Anderson Bird.Here are some of my notes on his family and a copy of the censuses:

!PROBATE:Letters of administration 1n 1872 in Kennett Court House, Dunklin Co., MO.

Joseph married his second wife Susan Allison about 1870 and she had two children by him: Cora and Edward.His first wife's maiden name may have been Bramblett because the two extra children in the 1850 census appear in a Bramblet household closeby a month later.
