There is a Mary E. Sewell listed in the 1900 census at Kings Creek (North Carolina). She is listed as married to a
James F. Sewell - birth 1856. Children listed are James
Allen Sewell, Sara E. Sewell, and Mary H. Sewell. On another message board someone told me that this is the Sewell family (my family). They said that it was common in those days for people to change their first names whenever they wished....(John S. to James F.????)Is there any possibility that the census taker just got the first name and initial wrong??? But, my grandfather DID have a brother named James Allen Sewell born in Tennessee in 1887 and a sister named Mary Hester... I have never heard of the Sara E. Sewell.

Anyway, this is really hard to trace, but I will take your suggestions and keep looking.

Thank you so much!
