Would like to get in contact with relations of the following Taylors mentioned in the 1850 census of Martin Co. Martha Taylor 18/16, Caroline Taylor 16/14, and John Taylor,12. They lived with William Griffin and Caroline Griffin. I can't figure out the relation. James and Sally Harrell, two other adults also lived there with the children.

I am looking for information on a James Harrell & Sarah Ann (Taylor) Harrell. I know a nickname for Sarah is also Sally. I do not know where either James Harrell or Sarah Ann (Taylor) Harrell come from originally, but I do know they had two children born in Arkansas. The children were Jamse Thomas Harrell (b. 1878, d. 1957) ans Sarah Frances Harrell (b. 1875). Could we be talking about the same connection?

Martha Taylor is my 2X great grandmother. John Daniel and Caroline are her siblings. I do not know the exact relationship with the Griffins. I have seen the Harrell name also listed as Norell. What is your interest?

Hi, My 3X great grandmother is the Martha Taylor listed as living with the Griffin family in the 1850 Martin Co. NC Census. She and her 2 siblings were orphans and I do not know her relation to the Griffins or the Harrells. BUT...the female Harrell is listed as being 40 years old in 1850. If she gave birth in 1878, that would be highly unusual. I don't think these are the Harrells that you are looking for. Good luck with your search.

My great grandfather was James T Harrell. On his death certificate his mother was listed as Sarah Ann (Taylor) Harrell. Unfortunately his father's name is only listed as J Harrell.

Hi, I may be able to help you. I have 2 lines of Taylor blood in my family tree. This set of Taylors includes my gggrandmother Martha Taylor, her brother John Daniel Jr and younger sister Caroline. There is no connection there to the Harrells through marriage. However, I have the other Taylor line which does include a Sarah Taylor. Her parents were Bythel and Sally (Haines) Taylor. The oldest documentation is an 1831 marriage record from Edgecombe County, NC. So Bythel and Sally can be found in the 1850 Federal Census living in Martin County, NC. Their daughter Sarah Taylor is listed as being 11 years old in 1850. That would give her a birthdate of 1839 or 1840. Her younger brother William is listed as being age 5 in 1850. William is my great grandfather. After the Civil War, I have not been able to find the mother Sally or any of the other children aside from my William and his older brother Bythel Jr (who I believe moved to Texas) Bythel Sr is listed as living alone after the Civil War. Due to the 1870 courthouse fire in Martin County, records are scarce. So, check to see if this Sarah has birthdate that would correspond to your Sarah (Sally). Please let me know how you fare.
