Am looking for any information out there on the following Murrell family.
James Murrell b. abt 1784 m. Nancy Williams aka Lawson. They had 6 children, names unknown to me. According to court records, Nancy had an affair, but James allowed her to stay at the home. Nancy later abandoned the family and became pregnant by another man. She left that child at James' home for him to care for. That child's name was Calven. James was granted a divorce in 1822. James apparently was later married to unknown. They had the following children: Aytchera(Achua, HU) b.1832, Jeptha b. 1834, Murphy b. 1836, Martin b. 1838, Samuel b. 1842 and Jasper b. 1844. The mother of these children either left or died soon after. James then remarried once again to Barabary Wolfe in 1847. Any help in finding any small amount of information to help put this puzzle together would be greatly appreciated. I do know that in Hawkins Co. in the early 1780's there were 2 other Murrell's, Benjamin and Thomas, but can find no info to tie either of these into James.

Thanks,
Randy
