  • Notes 

    • William Wayland provides the information on this branch of the Terrell family. Mr. Wayland's information is located at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~wayland/terrill/index.html.
      The biography on his son, John Robert, in the "History of Randolph and Macon Counties, 1881", pgs. 433-434, state that William was "born in Virginia, but moved to Kentucky when a young man and married Ann Calvin, a native of that state." It says that "William came to Missouri in the spring of 1846, and locating in Randolph Co., bought and entered land and improved a farm, where he lived until his death in August 1869. In this family there were seven children, all of whom grew to maturity and have homes in Randolph County." Another reference, the "History of Randolph County" 1920, says that William was visiting in Kentucky at the time of this death, but was buried in Oakland Cemetary in Moberly. (Wayland)

      Wayland also provides this obituary of William Terrell.
      Death of An Old Citizen.--Nr. William Terrill, one of the best citizens Randolph county ever claimed, died very suddenly on the 21st of August, in Greenup county, KY. He was born in Virginia on the 18th day of February,
      1807, and was in the 62nd year of his age at the time of his death. He
      removed to Kentucky when quite young, where he grew to manhood and lived
      until 1846, when he removed to this county, where he has since resided. At
      the age of 18 he professed religion and became a member of the Baptist
      Church, and was ever after a devoted and honored member. He was married on
      the 5th of February, 1829, to Miss Ann Calvin, of Greenup county, KY. On
      the 9th of last month he left with his wife to visit her relatives in
      Kentucky, and reached her brother's residence on the 18th. On the 20th he
      was taken sick and died the next day, at the place where he was married
      forty years previous. He was a brother of Judge James Terrill of this
      county, and an uncle of Rev. James Terrill of this place. Mr. Terrill
      leaves a large family and a host of friends and relatives to mourn his
      loss.; North Missouri Herald 22 Sep 1869
