Does anyone know about JOhn Carrell abt 1740 he had 3 or 4 sons William ,John jr, Drewry < and maybe James ..Drewry is our direct line from John but I've run into a brick wall - where did he come fromI? Who was his wife / Drewry married Nancy (cherokee ?) in Ashe NC in 1795 and named her daughter Sarah Nancy / Sarah Nancy married Phillip Low . Drewry and Nancy had other children Drewry jr abt 1800m Morton abt 1802, Sarah 1808, Alexander D abt 1814, and William abt 1817
Drewry jr abt 1800 married Celia Ward abt 1804 in 1828 they had Emily? , Calvin abt 1830marriedSarah Susan Phillips ,Drury King abt 1841married Sarah Daughtery , sampson abt 1845 married Elizabeth , Byrd abt 1835married Elizabeth Phillips, and daughter Celia ? We have heard that theirr were 4 brothes that came into South Carolina one stayed and the other three went west . John was in NC in 1776 (Drewry was born ) AND IN ASHE CO NC john had land grants in 1799 and Drewy land grants in 1801 I don't know if the tale is true I'm beginning to think they are from VA but can not make the connection. Any help appreciated jess
I've been able to track my family back to a Charles Carrell (or oll), Sr. who seems to have been married to a woman named Mary. They had quite a few other children - Grieve, John, Charles Jr., Susan, Freeman, Elizabeth, Kate, Francis, and Jane. I can't find who Charles, Sr.'s parents were, though. He was born in 1760, quite possibly in SC or NC. I would love to trace this back to the first immigrant in our family. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate it if you would pass it on.
