Re: Where are we from?
Aha! Just when I thought I was crazy! My grandmother was a Ferrell, and she told me when I was little that she was part Cherokee! She has since passed away and her younger sister knows nothing of this. They are all dark complected, high cheekbones, jet black hair, etc. My Ferrell's came from NC- the farthest I can document is @ 1800. Bryant, then Corda or Corday, then Clarence, then Grandma. Corday and Clarence came to West Virginia. I believe my Ferrell'soriginally came from Ireland- but cannot go back any further. And cannot trace the Cherokee no matter how hard I try!! All the names in the tree so far have been Irish/English, seems pretty odd to have such dark skin/hair/eyes and be so "white"!
