Ezell appears many times as a middle name in our Belue (many spellings) and Lawson lines. For example: John Ezell Lawson b. 1858 in Itawamba Co. MS - son of William Riley Lawson from Union Co. SC and Mary Ann Bellew (siblings spelled Belue) b. ~1833 also of Union Co. SC. (We believe Mary is descended from Rene/Renney/Rainey Belue b.1731 Virginia and William is the son of Sarah Fincher Lawson Kindred and ? Lawson who is our other brick wall).
We are searching for the Ezell-Belue and Ezell-Lawson links.We have found one in a side branch of the Belue family in early 1800s.This is too tangential (not in our direct line) for so many Ezell middle names over the years.
Do any of you know of links between these families? Patt
