The Goodspeed History of Tennessee says John and Thadius both served in the Confederate Army during the civil war. Both reportedly became ill and died in that conflict. 
TERRELL, Thadius (I16981)
 
2
Attended William Jewell College in Missouri, but did not finish as he went into the family businesses. He owned several businesses of his own over his life span, including a bakery in Moberly. He was also Moberly City Clerk for awhile. He was a stockbroker at the time of the 1929 crash and lost everything he had in savings (over $50,000). As he was age 57 at the time, he never recovered financially, but seemed to take this philosophically. His son, John, was attending Yale at the time of the crash, and had to get out and work to put himself through the rest of his PhD. degree by pounding rails for the railroad. During WWII, Lloyd went back to work to aid the war effort as a machinist in a factory. He had learned this trade in his father's machine shop and haystacker factory. He was past 70, and the other men called him "Pop". He looked like a Dutchman, with his white mustache, stocky build, and pipe that drooped down from his mouth. He had a great sense of humor. He worked so well at the factory that the other men complained that he was making them look bad by turning out more items than they were. His supervisor told him to go ahead and make as many as he wanted, and he would set some aside for a rainy day (which never came) on a separate set of books, keeping everyone happy. Lloyd never knew how to do less than his best on any job. He was fiercely independent and lived by himself until about 6 months before his death, just short of his 95th birthday, in the same house his children were born in, doing his own cooking, etc. He had a sharp, clear mind to the last, helping much in this genealogy. He didn't last long when put in a nursing home, which he dreaded. (Wayland)

Solomon Terrell is listed as Wake County officer "First Major" in 1796. (Justices and Military officers of NC, p.197) Both he and his father are mentioned in Revolutionary war Army accounts (Vol.IX, p.84, Folio 3). 
TERRELL, Solomon (I9389)

According to his obituary, John Thomas Paynter had seven children. Six were still alive at his death. The six named here are named in his will. We do not know the name of the seventh child.
There was some confusion over John L. Paynter. He apparently went by his middle name: Lillian. And we were confused and thought him to be female. 
PAYNTER, Unknown (I17612)
 
5
Elsewhere, his date of death is given as 21 Feb 1895. He was unmarried. (Wayland) 
TERRILL, Samuel George (I17356)

He went by the name of "Green". See his biography in the "History of Randolph Co., MO.", 1920, p. 382. He later separated from his wife and moved in with his brother, Vint. His wife moved to the Southwest U.S. (Wayland) 
TERRILL, Robert Greene (I17366)

Fought for Confederacy in Civil War and was wounded. Walked with a limp for the rest of his life. Became a banker, and was called "Judge" for some reason. Unknown if this was honorary, or if he was a judge at one time. Had no children. Left his money to his niece, Elizabeth "Lizzie" Terrill (#2704), dtr. of his brother John Robert. Was probably named after his uncle Arthur Parker, the first husband of Elizabeth Terrill (his father's sister). (Wayland) 
TERRILL, Arthur Parker (I17355)

John R. worked on his father's farm in Missouri until he came of age and then went in the company of Capt. William Roberts (relative?) and others to Calif. by the overland route, and, including the time he spent in the mines, was two years making the trip. He returned in the summer of 1852 by way of the Isthmus and New York. After spending two years with his father, he made another trip to Calif., overland, taking some cattle, and returned the next year by the same route as before. Gives marriage to Anne E. Roberts and says that he established himself on a farm which had previously been owned by Jehu Pyle, and he was still living there at the time of the biography in 1881. It says that he owned 400 acres, 330 in cultivation, and a good two story house and outbuildings, 200 apple and 100 peach trees, plus grapes. Gives death of his wife and lists his nine children by name. It further states that "Mr. Terrill is a man of winning address and much ability; he takes a warm interest in all educational matters and has carried his views into practice in the training of his children; a member of the Morality Lodge, N. 186, A.F. & A.M." The "History of Randolph County", 1920, also has a short biography on John Robert. It states that he lived on the same farm in Randolph Co. for 50 years. It is said that he got the money for his farm in Missouri through making a strike in the '49 California gold rush. (Above provided by W. Wayland) 
TERRILL, John Robert (I17350)

Lewis was an accountant for several firms in Northern Virginia. 
PAYNTER, Lewis Thomas (I42)

Some give her father as William Richmond. The name Richmond is popular for generations of Terrills thereafter, mostly in America. Some give her first name as Margaret. This may be the royalty line, which is no longer thought possible. 
UNKNOWN, Elizabeth (I17337)
 
13
The name is also shown as Maria Eva GOETTGE and Mary Eva GOTTGEN. And Ruth Goodman (112 Brookwood, Rockingham, NC 28379) lists her as Mary Eve Ketchie, daughter of Hannes Ketchie. There is little doubt these are the same person. We apparently not the first to have difficulty spelling German names.
Whatever the case, her nickname was apparently "Ketchey." There is some dispute among Eller historians about Jacob's daughter, Eve Eller. Janine Eller Porter says she is a daughter of Jacob by his second wife (which is what we show here). Ruth Goodman (in the Feb 93 "Chronicles") says she also believes Eve is a daughter of the second wife. Apparently, earlier published efforts have suggested she is a daughter of the first wife, Maria Eva Getchey. Ruth Goodman, however, believes daughter Elizabeth is also by the second wife. 
GETCHEY, Maria Elizabeth "Eva" (I3366)
 
14
"History of Randolph and Macon Counties, 1881" says that she was born in Kentucky but grew up and was educated in Missouri, and lists children and their spouses. She is not shown in the family on 1850 Randolph Co. MO census, having been married in Oct. of 1850. (Wayland) 
TERRILL, Mary Elizabeth (I17352)

"Jim" was a farmer. Lula taught at Terrill School south of Moberly, MO. They had no children. (Wayland) 
TERRILL, James Milton (I17364)

A farmer in Halifax County. 
SAUNDERS, Jacob R. (I16699)

A John D. Terrell, quoted by Emma Dicken (p.61-62), says Joel Terrell was his Grandfather and that his Grandfather's brothers were John, James & Timothy. To date, that is the best evidence for listing Joel as a son of William of Hanover. Joel was born in Hanover, but moved to King William County when he became of age. Later, that part of King William was made into Caroline County. Joel received considerable land from his Father. Along with his Brother-in-law, David Lewis, he also patented land in Albemarle and Goochland. 
TERRELL, Joel (I1613)

According to historian Don C. Terrell ("The Terrell Family, 1988), William Terrell served in the American revolution. 
TERRELL, Jr., William (I1585)

According to Ms. Peggy Troutman (Salisbury, NC), this John Melchor Eller was married three or four times. Ms. Kesler was the last wife. She says there were five children and that she is uncertain which children are by which wife.
There is some confusion between this John Melcher Eller and John Melker Eller (RIN 3398) who is the son of Immigrant John Melker Eller (RIN 0914). Ms. Troutman shows this configuration and we believe the best evidence supports her. 
ELLER, John Melcher ,II (I1081)

Alice Marie Howe attended the University of Indiana where she studied mathamatics. At the age of 23 she married Charles Eller immediately prior to his entrance into Dental School.
In 1907 she and Charles moved to Albuquerque, NM, in part due to her fragile health. She had three children, and was never able to regain her health completely. She died in Albuquerque at the age of 74. She was known to her grandchildren as "Nanny", and is remembered for her beauty, her elegance and sound "Mid-Western" judgement. (By Kirk Graham) 
HOWE, Alice Marie (I3689)
 
21
From other sources, including the family Bible, a birth date of 1854 is given. But since we are relatively certain that is the year his sister was born (from her tombstone), we are going with the date on his tombstone.
According to John A. Terrell Junior, Thaddeus suffered from "malaria fever" and decided to move away from the swampy land around the Hyco Creek. He sold his land there and moved to Lunenburg County, Virginia. 
TERRELL, Thaddeus Thomas (I33)

I have many found memories of Anne, my grandmother. She was a classy lady.
I have seen her middle name also listed as "Coates", rather than "Calvin". Her brother, Vincent, had the middle name of Calvin. A note from Lloyd gives marriage date as 25 Jun 1901. (Wayland) 
TERRILL, Anne Calvin (I17376)

In 1820, Williamson Terrell moved with his step-father to Vernon, Indiana, but later returned to Kentucky and went into business with his brothers. They moved about 1828-30 to Columbus, Indiana, and continued the business there. He edited a newspaper and was in the lower house of the Indiana legislature for two terms. He then entered the ministry of the Methodist Church. He received his DD degree from Indiana State University. (Dicken, p.203) 
TERRELL, Williamson (I7986)

In addition to the land he apparently inherited from his father in Henrico County, he purchased 60 acres of land along Bluestone Creek in Charlotte County, Virginia, in 1777. In a small way, it supports the possibility his brother Henry is our Henry in Lunenburg since it suggests this generation of sons was moving to counties South of Henrico.
Roger Cocke Bailey enlisted in the Revolutionary army in 1781 as a Corporal in Cpt. James Gunn's company of Virginia Regulars from Charlotte County (Virginia Colonial Militia, Crozier, Henrico County, 1774-1782). 
BAILEY, Roger Cocke (I2542)

It seems likely Casper is Johann Kaspar Eller. According to J.G. Eller of the "Eller Family Association" in an address to the EFA Family Conference in Portland, Oregon, 1993, there is "...no evidence that he [Casper] came to America." This is also the view of EFA historian Ruth E. Goodman (112 N. Brookwood Ave., Rockingham, NC 28379). Both show Casper as Melker and Jacob Eller Senior's father.
There is considerable belief that Christian Eller (RIN #00767) is a third son of Casper Eller (and that Hook's speculation of Michael Eller as the father of Christian is incorrect). There is a Kaspar Eller marriage on 09 May 1751 (perhaps a second marriage?) to Elizabeth HAGEBOELLINGS at Evangelish, Remlingrade, Rheinland, Preussen. The location doesn't appear to match what little we know of "our" Casper. 
ELLER, Casper (I3365)

EDWARDS, Mary (I16002)

Mays moved from North Carolina to Grayson County, Virginia, about 1788-89. But then moved to Knox County, Kentucky. In 1820 he was in Whitley County (which had been formed in 1818 from Knox County so we assume the family didn't move, but that the area they lived in simply became a new county). 
MAYS, William "Billy" (I9391)

Robert and Ann sailed from England to Barbados in 1630, where he became a merchant.
In 1630, there was a Church dispute in the Southampton Tribe (Parish) in Barbados. Apparently some of the women in the Church were unhappy with their seats. So, on 17 Feb 1630, Robert Paynter was appointed to re-asign the womens' seats, with Mrs. Paynter to have the first choice. (Virginia Magazine of History & Biography) 
PAYNTER, Robert (I17550)

Stephen and his brother George are listed as Revolutionary war soldiers by the North Carolina D.A.R. (p.364). 
WILLIS, Stephen (I4862)

The marrage to Elizabeth Shackleford lists Philip Baynes as the bondsman. We believe Philip is Eaton Baynes' brother. If that is the case, it makes him the brother also to Thornton Baynes; and all sons to John Baynes Sr.
That is also the conclusion of Stephen Wall who has provided considerable information on the Baynes family. 
BAYNES, Eaton (I1573)
 
40
The only connection we have for Jemima as a child of Richard C. Terrell is the listing of Richard C. as surity on the marriage.
Jamima was widowed fairly early and is believed to have lived with one of her children until her death after 1830. 
TERRELL, Jemima (I1679)
 
41
This John Baynes was a revolutionary war soldier. He filed for compensation after the war in Perry County, IL. 
BAYNES, John , Jr. (I16188)

We are not certain of Mary's last name. Linda Banwarth, who's done considerable research, offers the speculation of the name Daniel. 
DANIELS, Mary (I16001)
 
45
While Armistead King is listed amoung the founders of Sharon Baptist Church (later Wise Baptist Curch) and while its reported he is burried in the Church cemetary, an exhaustive search of tombstones there (in 1995) fails to show a stone. It is possible the stone never existed or is missing or its possible he is burried elsewhere. 
KING, Armistead G. (I2865)

"Avery, son of Robert Tyrrold of Habourne, was joint executor with his mother, Agnes, and was therefore presumably the eldest son. The executor of Avery's will, which was proved on the 27th May 1584, was his son, Robert." (Brown)
 
TYRROLD, Avery (I17346)
 
47
"The executor of the will of David Turrolde, husbandman of West Hagbourne, which was proved on 15th Jan 1577/8 was his only son William." O.F. Brown
