I don't have very much info on this.All my grandmother knows is my grandfather and his family used to talk about this from time to time.My direct ancestors in Georgia during the 1800's starting with my g-g-g-g-g grandfather would have been:
Simon Harrell. Moved to Warren County, Georgia from Bertie County, North Carolina in 1798-1800.
Simon Gray Harrell.
Joel Howard Harrell
Alexander B G Harrell Lived in Georgia Militia District 757 in Macon. Was born May 1840.Not sure when he left Georgia for Texas as I have not been able to find 1870, 1880, 1890 census for him but his first son Seth, my great grandfather, was born in Texas in 1882.
