Hello, My great great grandfather was named Samuel J. Terrell. I know he resided in Coryell & Bell counties beginning in at least 1900 (possibly earlier), until his death on 23 Sept. 1933.
I know he was born approx. 1861, if the age he gave on the 1900 Census of Coryell Co is correct.
I do not know where he was born, but on the 1900 Census he states he was born in Alabama, then on the 1910 Census of Bell Co Texas, he states he was born in Mississippi.
I do not know who his parents were, but believe they may have been born in Mississippi (according to 1900 Census of Coryell Co).
I do know that he married Jane "Jennie" Penny (daughter of James Penny & Lucy Stapleton)& together they had 4 sons:
John Calvin Terrell
S. Homer Terrell
Jesse Tip Terrell
James Benjamin Terrell (my great grandfather).
Any info anyone can share regarding Samuel & his wife Jane "Jennie" would be most appreciated. Especially information regarding his birth, his parents & then the death of his wife Jane.
I assume she likely passed between 1902 & 1910, my great grandfather was born in 1902, but on the 1910 Census of Bell Co Texas, Jane is not listed, and Samuel has moved into the household of his son John Calvin (along with Samuel & Jane's 3 younger sons). I would really love to know what happened to her as well.
