Her obit. says that she left 30 grandchildren. She is listed as living in the family of Wm. S. Christian (son-in-law) in the 1870 census. Her husband died in 1869, and she may have moved in with her dtr. as she was age 60. There is also the possibility that the dtr. and her family may have moved in with her on her large farm; the census would probably still have listed the man as head of household, even though she owned the house and farm. On later reading of her obit, it says that she had been very feeble for some time and had for several years been bereft of her eyesight (most likely diabetes). (Wm Wayland)

In his will, this John Eller (and there are a lot of John Ellers) mentions John Melchoir Eller II as the son of his sister, Susanna.
John's will mentions that his wife deserted him. His wife could be Margaret Lemly (marr. 26 Apr 1808). While that would put his marriage fairly late in his life, the marriage record for Rowan County shows Ms. Lemly married John Eller Senior (which would tend to support him being somewhat older).
There appear to have been no children as he leaves his plantation to John Eller, son of his sister Susanna and her husband John Eller and $25 to John Eller, son of John Melcher Eller.
He also provided well for one Caty Thiles, about whom we know nothing. (Hook)

John A. Terrell Junior says Pliney Fisk Terrell (his name is also shown as Pentius and Plenteous)) was a Baptist minister. He apparently married a widdow, a Mrs. Farthing, in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, right after the Civil War. John Junior says everyone believed Mrs. Farthing's first husband died in the Civil War. However, after she remarried, her first husband re-appeared one day, and Pliney Fisk Terrell left, broken hearted.
John Junior says he bacame something of a "hermit" on land between Thaddeus Terrell's and Harvey Street Powers' land in Lunenburg County. John Junior says he was something of a beloved character in the area. He reportedly always had "rock candy" to give to children.
Pliney Fisk Terrell and his brother, Sam Banks Terrell, did not stay on their father's farm as long as their father wanted and he gave them no share of his estate.
|TERRELL, Pliney Fisk (I2471)
John Baynes is in Mecklenburg County (Virginia) in the Census of 1780. It shows his household with 11 white persons and one black. We know of five of those people: John and wife and three children.
John names sons Thornton and Philip in land trasactions (1802 & 1808). A daughter Nancy is mentioned in James Yancey's will in 1777. Those are the three children we KNOW.
John refers to himself as John SENIOR in the land transactions noted above and at the James Yancey estate sale in 1779, a John Baynes JUNIOR buys a snuff box. That adds a probable sixth person.
Eaton Baynes names Philip Baynes as bondsman in his marriage. Both Stephen Wall and I believes he is a brother. That makes seven.
That means there could be four more children. Possibilities include James, Polly, Fanney & Isabella all of whom are married in Caswell County between 1810 and 1819. But we have no evidence and in fact, its quite possible they are Philp's children.
One other note, one of John Baynes Senior's daughters marries Joshua Westbrook. On 13 Oct 1803 (DB11 P494) Baynes gives Westbrook a slave. He clearly identifies Westbrook as his son-in-law.
|BAYNES, John , Sr. (I16184)
John Ellington Junior was granted land in Prince George County (VA) in 1776. Then on 20 Sep 1779, he moved to Bute County NC (later to become Warren County). On 7 Jun 1780, he patented 611 acres (Grant #26, State of NC). This land is described as being between Hawtree and Smith Creeks. It is ironic that the author of this genealogy now owns a home just across the state line (in Virginia) between the Hawtree and Smith Creeks.
Ron Adams says John Ellington Jr's will is filed in the Amelia County (Va) Will Book #3, dated 5 Mar 1783.
|ELLINGTON, John , Jr. (I17581)
John Ellington received several tracts of land in Prince George (VA) County in an area that later became Amelia County, The earliest was on 8 May 1712 (Record Book 1, part 3, page 750). There were several surveys, showing well over 2000 acres.

Like his older brother and his father, Robert King joined the Confederate Army. He was 16 when he joined on 14 Feb 1863. He enlisted as a "substitute." He served with Company C, 46th Regt, North Carolina Troops. De deserted to the enemy about March 14, 1865. He was reportedly confined in Washington on 18 Mar 1865. And then was released after taking an Oath of Allegiance.

My father affectionately called her "Aunt Lizzie". She never married and was a school teacher. She was a teacher in Tenn. and later Ariz. It is interesting that 3 of the 4 dtrs. never married, but were teachers.
Uncle Arthur Parker Terrill, a banker without children, left her all of his money when he died in 1915. Lizzie lived with her sister Anne (my grandmother) for about 6 years and then moved to live with Vince and Susie for the remainder of her life (another 25 years). My father, b. 1907, can remember that she taught him and his siblings manners. Lloyd Wayland (Anne's husband) finally got tired of what he considered her superior airs and she moved on. (Wayland)

Philemon Terrell is listed as a possible son of James Terrell by historian Emma Dicken. However, Don Terrell's book "The Terrell Family," 1988, does not list him as a brother to William, Dudley and James. Don Terrell notes however that there is no record of James' will or probate.
Pauline Brandy (email@example.com) shows Philemon only as the son "of a James Terrell." And she says Philemon has a brother Richmond Terrell, who lived next door to him about 1790 in Robeson County, North Carolina. Both, she says, were Revolutionary War soldiers (Philemon Wilmington District payment voucer #674 & #3165).
The information on Philemon's descendants comes from Ms. Brandy' research (some of it confirms material in Dicken).
Philemon Terrell owned 100 acres south of Cheek's Creek in Anson County, NC, which he sold in 1766.By 1778, he is in Robinson County, NC, near the present day town of Lumberton. It is believed both Philemon andbrother Richmond received land in Georgia as bounty for their War service. In 1795, he sells all his North Carolina land and by 1800 he and his family are in Liberty County, Georgia.
His estate -- settled in 1816 -- included 600 acres with 150 pines and 5 slaves. His widow and several of his children moved west after his death with the Ratcliff family (son Philemon Jr. married into that family).
|TERRELL, Philemon (I1921)
Philemon Terrell Jr. had relocated to Pointe Coupee Parish, La. Margaret Ratcliff Terrell never returned to Pointe Coupee Parish. She remained in Arkansas during the time that her daughter Mary Ann Terrell Lefevre was having children. Margaret Ratcliff Terrell became ill and passed away in Arkansas. Old records indicate that Mary Ann Terrell's brother, Samuel Lafayette Terrell, purchased medicine and paid the taxes on the slave "Jack". Records and old family letters make no mention of Margaret Ratcliff Terrell after 1851. It wasn't long before Mary Ann Terrell's husband, Peter Lefevre, also became ill and passed away in 1853.
Mary Ann Terrell moved to Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana where her father Philemon Terrell Jr. had previously settled.
It was here in Pointe Coupee Parish that Mary Ann Terrell Lefevre, a widow, met and married a neighbor James Creath Wilcox. They were married 10 October 1855 and lived on the "Old Wilcox Home Place", the same property currently owned by the Smith family.
The endearing story of our Mary Ann Terrell and James Creath Wilcox is published in "The History of Pointe Coupee Parish", as written by the late Roberta Rice Smith.

Philip Baynes is listed in the 1810 census in Caswell County, NC. That census shows two adults (presumably Philip & Mary) and four daughters. The names shown here are from a deed from John Baynes Sr.
It would appear there is at least one additional child. There may be others.
Philip was in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, by 1820.
Stephen Wall (firstname.lastname@example.org) says he believes Philip ended up in Kentucky. He notes a Philip Baynes there had a child named Thornton in 1853.

This William Terrell could have been born as early as 1722 or as late as 1730-32. The earlier date comes from the speculation of John A. Terrell, Jr. The later date, from Don Terrell ("The Terrell Family," 1988) and is also offered by Emma Dicken (p.279).
William sold the land he got from his father in Cumberland County and relocated to Halifax County, Virginia.
We do know he was married by 1767, because he is mentioned in his father-in-law's will in that year. John Jr. found that doccument and apparently, Don Terrell is unaware of its existance. Don Terrell says William moved to Halifax about 1777. We are not sure why he picks that date, but we do know that William is mentioned in the settling of his (apparent) brother's estate in that year.
Both historians say William died in 1797 in Halifax. John Jr. says William's son Richard C. died in the same year, after having just moved to Halifax (from Pittsylvania) to help his father with the father's farm. If Richard was ill at the time of his father's death, it might be a good explanation of why William Junior (not Richard) was chosen administrator on William Senior's will. William Senior's will was written, however, in 1792 and not probated until 16 June 1797.

We know this William is Sampson's son because of William's marriage record (to Elizabeth Palmer) in which he is recorded as "...Son of Sampson Power." There are records which show the bride as Elizabeth Parmer, instead of Palmer. In either case, the wedding is performed by Rev. William Ellis.
There is another marriage record at about the same time, showing a William Powers who marries Dosha Farley on 10 Dec 1796. We do not know if this could be an earlier marriage for "our" William Powers.
In the 1840 Census of Mecklenburg County, there were 8 people in the William Powers household. Allen is in his own home.

"One of the overseers of the will of David Torrell of Reading, clothier, the probate date of which was 30th Oct 1632, was his brother, Robert Torrell of Reading, clothier. The will of Francis Tyrroll of Reading, broadweaver, named his brother, Robert Tyrrell as an overseer and had the probate date of the 2nd of Oct 1838. There appears little doubt that the three brothers, David, Francis & Robert were the sons of William of West Hagbourne."

Abraham Martin served under George Washington in the Braddock campaign.
According to John Terrell Junior, Abraham Martin was a surveyor who owned land from Canada to Georgia. He had seven sons in the American Revolution.
By 1769, Martin and his wife were in the Edgefield District of South Carolina. He called Martinstown, SC home. However, his will was proved in Charlotte County, VA.
He was killed by Indians on a surveying trip in South Georgia in 1773. Terrell says Patrick Henry bought a large part of Abraham Martin's Estate. (per records at Charlotte County Cthse, Virginia).
John Terrell, Jr. shows Martin's wife to be a Miss. Burwell, daughter of Lewis Burwell, a member of the Virginia house. We, however, show the wife as the widdow Elizabeth Betty Marshall Smith (Genealogies of American Families, Vol.III, William & Mary Quarterly; Colonial Families of the Southern States, Stella Hardy; Descendants of Daniel Martin, Gee).

According to the research of R. Milton Atkins, this is the same Thomas Paynter who served in the Confederate Army in Company B, 30th NC Infantry.
We've found that record. Thomas is shown as a Warren County farmer who enlisted in Company B, 30th Regiment, North Carolina Troops (the Confederate Army) 16 Jun 1861 at age 24. This Thomas P. Paynter is listed as present or accounted for until discharged on 14 Jan 1862, by reason of "a wound received on the scalp about five years ago" as a civilian.
He re-enlisted in the same company on 16 Jul 1863. Records show him detailed as a shoemaker (17 Sep 1863); absent on detail (Aug 1864); hospitalized at Richmond 24 Feb 1865 with what was described as "nostalgia." This Thomas Paynter was apparently still in the hospital in Richmond when the city fell (3 Apr 1865). He is listed as paroled there about 21 April 1865.
Atkins shows the marriage date as 14 Apr 1857.
Atkins also quotes Luther Paynter of Wise as saying Thomas died and left Frances with several young children. She was apparently without the resources to raise the family and had to send the children to different people to raise. One result was that Adelia was raised by her older sister, Rosa (King).

After living in the Northern part of Indiana, Oscar Herman ELLER returned to Monroe County where, according to J.W. Eller, he was "...engaged in farming and teaming." He spent two years in Oklahoma, where he was a street car motorman. He then was in Kansas City working in the packing houses.
In 1915 he came back to the farm, where he was in 1918 when J.W. Eller wrote his book.
J.W. notes two marriages. For the first in 1907, he is unable to provide a name. However, Dr. Kirk Graham tells us she is Miss. Bass. Dr. Graham also notes a second wife, Pansy Withers, to whom Oscar Eller marries in 1920.
