Hi Nancy, Many thanks for taking the time to reply. You are the first to do so. Hopefully this will encourage others to do the same. And yes Thomas Norrell is my cousin. We both collaborate on anything to do with NORRELL GENEALOGY. Iam intrested in your JAMES NORRELL & MARY SPRAGGINS as James's family my have come originally from IRELAND, though I think that MARY'S ancestors are more likely to be found in middle ENGLAND(therefore they may be ancestors of our's). I have some information about JAMES's record in the REVOLUTIONARY WAR - THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE, which I got from the DAUGHTERS OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. Do you know of JAMES'S ancestry can you fill in any of the pieces? Any further information would be much appreciated indeed. Kind regards, David Norrell. PS: MERRY XMAS to all you NORRELLS' out there!
