I am trying to find James Fitz Gerald/Jarrell/Jerrell/Fitzgerald -- and thus I am slowly reading all the postings in this forum where the given name 'James' appears.The individual I am looking for is the son in law of Jester COCKE and Sarah Cole COCKE, married to their daughter, Rebecca COCKE. They leave Virginia and go to Madison Co., Alabama, then toWayne Co., Kentucky, and thereafter to Clark Co., Alabama.
So I came across a posting about the James inquired about in the original post.
1728.Maryland. He is mentioned in a book about early immigrants to America.
Here is a cut & paste of the posting:

James Gerald - Maryland, in 1728 Posted by: Billie Harris (ID *****5801) Date: October 10, 2002 at 19:25:08
I am researching Henry Randolph/Randall and the following was just brought to my attention:
"The Complete Book of Emigrants 1700-1750" Year 1728 Pg. 378 11th January: The following bound to James Gerald to serve in Maryland: Henry Randall, William Wood. (CLRO: ATSR/ f.29v)."
Do any of you know who the James Gerald was in Maryland?
I notice some of you have indicated there was a James Gerald of South Carolina. Could these two individuals have been the same person? I've also noticed a couple of same names in your postings and in Henry Randall/Randolph's descendants - Suddarth, Sumpter. Henry's granddaughter married James Suddarth in Albemarle County, Virginia. James' father and mother were James and Patience (Sumpter) Suddarth. Without looking it up, I don't believe James and Patience were originally from Albemarle County.
Any assistance will be appreciated. Please e-mail me at email@example.com.
