I am tracking the Ferrells of Ferrells Branch in Coffee Co. Tn and at Garrison Fork of the Duck River in Middle Tenn. Some of this family I have information back to 1811 and before Tenn origins. Some of this family moved close to my direct line Ferrells near Short Mountain at Woodbury. My family lived at Short Mountain from as early as 1805.
I am trying to find where John Ferrell and his wife Jane Ferrell came from. They had 10 kids Alexander Calhoun Ferrell, Jane Ferrell, John Ferrell Jr, Martha Ferrell, Charles Ferrell,Enoch Ferrell, William Ferrell, Elizabeth Ferrell,Margaret Ferrell, and Ann Ferrell.
My John Ferrell had will dated 1827 Warren Co. Tenn. He owned land at Hurricane creek of the Caney Fork in present Dekalb Co. by 1824 This John Ferrells wife Jane could have been a Blanton by maiden name. Am writing book "From Powder to the Cannon" Would like to share info
There is John , Enoch & William(my Grandfather) in our
family . My mother was a Ferrell ,Married my father, Edward
Hood , her name is Lula Elizabeth. Maybe same family !
I have some information on family . Grandfather was born in
Tn. my mother knew his brothers and sisters , but as my
grandfather moved to Alabama prior to marrying grandmother
(Katie Elizabeth Wright Simpson) she doesn't know much about his parents , we have a picture of his mother. Have been searching for some time now . There is also some info on John Ferrell,Jr. Thanks , Joan Elizabeth
While searching for my John and Catherine Ferrell/Farrell, I have come across several records of a John and Jane Ferrell/Farrell in Wilkes Co., GA during the time period you are referring to. I didn't keep any of the information regarding them or I'd offer to send it to you.
I am looking for a Smith Ferrell of Overton/Fentress counties TN. May have come from KY. May have had a brother William Ferrell and Smith Ferrell's wife may have been Mary McCown born abt. 1775 in VA. SMith Ferrel may have been born 1752-1758 in York, PA.
My grandmother was a Ferrell and had several sets of twins in her family, tho she was not. But, there was a John Nealy and Joe Alexandra born 1877 and I am wondering if you came from this line. I am now 74. Their dad was James Lewis who lived with us after his wife Jane Hanson Ferrell died and he was sick... lived to be 99 years 10 months and 27 days. His father was William Lowe Ferrell. If you are related to any of this family... give me an email please. :-)firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to exchange information with you about this line. I descend through William Lowe Ferrell's line by way of his daughter, Martha Jane Lowe Ferrell.
Martha married Daniel Wesley Eaker.
I've been away from the message for a while. My mother's family (FERRELL) was from Cannon County, TN around Short Mountain.
