  • Notes 
    • Simon Terrell enlisted in the Revolutionary Army from Chatham County, NC. In 1836, he was granted a pension for his services as a Dragoon in the North Carolina troops. He is listed in NC Revolutionary Army Accounts, Book C, p.103, under accounts allowed by State, "paid Simon Terrell, two pounds eight shillings," and listed again Vol. XI, p.50, folio 2. Simon's bother, Daniel Terrell, married the sister of of Simon's wife. Timothy Terrell left his son Simon 300 acres of land. In 1779, Simon sells that land to Joseph John Alston of Halifax County. Simon bought land in Chatham County, NC in 1780. And he was still in Chatham County, NC in the census of 1790. But he and his wife were in Franklin County, Georgia, by 1795 when they both sign a deed there. By 1808, he signs another deed, but without his wife, suggesting she may have died by 1808.
