Apparently George Powers never formally married although the family says he "lived" with a Black woman for a number of years. He is apparently burried with her. This information is reluctantly confirmed by both Kathrine Ferguson and Irving Powers. Neither apparently knows her name or if there are children.
In the records of Lunenburg County, there are at least two references to George making legal arrangements with the firm of Turnbull and Bell in the period 1891-1894. And he sells land to Josephine Epes on 26 Jan 1894 (db 45, p. 277) and Sallie Gee (db 46, 626).

Genealogists differ over the father of this Robert Tyrrell. There are several older researchers who believe Robert is the son of William Tyrrell, of Bruyn & Reading. If that were the case, it would tie our family into the English Kings and Queens and back into French Royalty.
It is tempting to accept that research. But along comes O.F. Brown (The Tyrrells of England; Chapter Nine, Printed in Terrell Trails, Summer 1996). He offers clear evidence that Robert's father is, as we show here, William Tyrrold (or Tirroll) a clothier of Reading, England.
Since we know that is the profession of Robert, and with so many other facts that fit, we are persuaded this is the correct father.
Here are Brown's observations, "The legatees of Robert Tyrrold of Hagbourne in the county of Berkshire, whose will was proved on the 13th August 1545, included his four sons, William, David, Richard & Avery. The executor of the will of David Turrolde, husbandman of West Hagbourne, which was proved on the 15th of January 1577/8 was his only son William. In the will of his son, Willyam Tyrrold, yeoman of West Hagbourne, which was proved on 9th October 1587 by his wife Elizabeth, he left land and goods jointly to her and his son Davy. His other two sons, Francys & Robart, inherited 40 pounds plus land, etc., when they reached age of 21 years provided they leave and yield the land to brother Davy, when he reached 21. One of the overseers of the will of David Torrell of Reading, clothier, the probate date of which was 30th October 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 October 1838...There appears little doubt that these three brothers, David, Francis & Robert were the sons of William of West Hagbourne."
The name apparently was TYRROLD or TYRRELL in England; it became Tirrell and Terrell generations later in America. We have chose to show the change at this point, but in truth, the change was much more gradual.

Henry's will shows he died wealthy but without heirs. His will clearly mentions brothers and nephews and leaves the bulk of his estate to them and his wife Jane. He leaves his wife half his land and 16 Negro slaves. (Wythe County, VA Will Book 5, p.194)
The absence of children in his will suggests he and Jane had none.
There are apparently at least two and maybe three Henry Ellers about this time. There is THIS Henry, son of Christian, brother to Frederick and half-brother to George. And there appears to be a Henry, who is George's son. And there is a Henry in Rowan County who died about 1805 with very young children.
The other -- as yet unplaced Henry -- is shown as id. number 14,638.

It would appear from a couple letters exchanged between Major S. Temple and Judge O.P. Temple that Major was something of an assistant, legal aide, political operative and business partner to OliverPerry Temple.
They had business dealings in sugar, brown sugar, salt contracts for the Civil War, cotton and cheap land for tobacco.
At one point, he was Superintendent of the Tennessee and Virginia Railroad.
Its clear Major Temple borrowed money from Judge O.P. Temple. In his letter of 1 May 1844, he explains his plan to remary won't impact their "business arrangement" no his expectation to repay O. P. Temple.
Other letters record the killing of his first Buffalo (Ellsworth, Kansas, 11 Apr 1871).

Its not clear which children are by which wife. Samuel's will refers to six children by Mary. The two infant girls and Lowery (who is not yet 21 at the time of his father's will) seem likely. We suspect Mary, Joseph & Elizabeth as the others. We believe Sampson was the oldest, since he gets the plantation, and therefore from the first wife.

J. W. Eller says he attended Indiana University and then returned home to teach school for three years. He then went to Indianapolis and worked his way through Dental school. He moved then to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he practiced dentistry and was President of the New Mexico Dental Association.
Charles' grandson, Dr. Kirk Graham, provides the following delightful memories. Dr. Charles Asbury Eller and his wife, Alice Marie Howe, arrived in Albuquerque in 1907. Dr. Eller quickly became one of the most prominent dentists in the state of New Mexico, where he was to practice for 53 years.
Dr. Eller was very active in organized dentistry, serving as the Secretary-Treasurer of the New Mexico Dental Association in 1911. He was later to serve as President of that Association in 1931.
Dr. Eller, known as "Charlie" to most who knew him, was also an active Shriner, serving as Grand Potentate of the Ballud Abyad Temple in Albuquerque. He was a charter member of the Albuquerque Kiwanis Club, the Albuquerque Elks Club and the Albuquerque Country Club. He was an avid deer and turkey hunter, and maintained a fishing cabin near El Vada Reservoir in Northern New Mexico.
Charlie was proud of his heritage, and often spoke of his childhood in Indiana. In his later years he suffered from cateracts which he had removed. His eyesight after the surgery, however, was quite compromised.
Charlie was one of this world's worst drivers. Family members would use ingenious creativity and imagination to conjure ways in which to avoid having to ride with "Bampa".
Charlie was also one of the worst dressers in the state. His idea of conservative dress was to wear plaid shirt, contrasting plaid tie, and conservative striped pants.
I write this message a full 22 years after his passing. Dentists across the state still come up and relive charming, funny stories about "Charlie". He was one of a kind, and he is missed by all who knew him. Charlie, my Grandfather. Kirk Graham

Jeptha Terrell was in the North Carolina Militia on 08 Oct 1754 in Cpt. Sugar Jones' Company, William Eaton's Regiment (Muster Roll, NC Colonial Records, Vol. XXII, p.378). There appear to be two wives mentioned in various records. It is possible they are the same person, but it seems unlikely. And there is at least some doubt about which children belong to which wife. However, in his will he left his estate to his wife "Margaret" and, at her death, to three children named in the will (sons Patrick, John & Jeptha) (which we believe were her children).
That will was filed in Granville County 18 Nov 1809 and was proved Feb 1811.
Jeptha's death is also recorded in the "North Carolina Star" on 8 Nov 1810.
|TERRELL, Jeptha (I1896)
John A. Terrell, Jr. says James Terrell came to North Carolina from Caroline County, Virginia by way of Cumberland County, Virginia. He notes that on 29 Jul 1761, Lord Granville granted 700 acres to James Terrell in Granville County, NC. This land is on the north side of the Tar River and on both sides of Mill Run. Order Book 1755-1758, p. 32. Historian Don C. Terrell ("The Terrell Family, " 1988) says he lived in Caroline County, although he purchased -- with his brother Joel and Henry and brother-in-law David Lewis -- land in Goochland. James Terrell became a Cornet (something like a Lieutenant) in the British Army on 09 Apr 1742. Later, a James Terrell that could be "our line," is listed as a Sergeant in Cpt. Mercer's company in the Colonial Virginia (under Gen. George Washington) army.
The children listed below are from James' will, found in Cumberland County, Virginia and dated 18 October 1766.
John Terrell says there are records in Cumberland County of all the male heirs selling their land in Cumberland County and moving to places along the Virginia-Carolina border (Halifax Va & Caswell NC).

Joseph Terrell was named in the land lottery in Georgia as a Revolutionary War soldier. Historian Don Terrell ("The Terrell Family," 1988) also lists him as a Revolutionary war soldier.
He moved to Elbert County, Georgia, in 1791. He bought 270 acres of land 28 Sep 1791. Joseph sold his land in Halifax County, Virginia, 25 Nov 1791. In an 1850 Georgia census, he notes his son Joseph R. Terrell was born in Virginia. Three of Joseph's children (Margaret, James and John) moved to Jefferson County, Alabama.

Milford Rudd was a tobacco farmer who also raised dairy cattle. He cared for both is morther and father into their 80's or 90's at their Lunenburg County farm. That farm, known as Chaptico, was located where there once had been a central garage for a narrow guage railroad that carried timber from the rural parts of Lunenburg and Mecklenburg County to South Hill, where it was transfered to a regular guage railroad.
Milford loved to play "practical jokes" especially on his nieces and nephews. These "jokes" are legendary, including the time he invited the author (then about 5 and dressed in his Sunday best) to "pull the calf's tail..." and not to dare let-go. Milford also provided this author's first experience with chewing tobacco (not a pleasent one, we might add).
When Milford's father was in his 90's, and suffering from poor eyesight, he was taking a basket of corn to feed some of the catle. A bull attacked him and broke his collar bone and caused other injuries. Mr. Rudd never fully recovered. Milford took a gun and went out in the field and shot the bull.
After the death of his wife, Elizabeth; he moved to South Hill and invited his widdowed sister Hettie Spencer (RIN #00204) to live with him. She stayed till her death. The a second sister, Lillie Ey (RIN #00383) moved in till his death.
