I am looking for as much information as I can get on John,Thomas, George, Lewis, Drury, Joel Spell as I can. I am also looking for information on Joseph Spell, who according to other records, served with the North Carolina Troops during Revolutionary War, his widow was allowed to draw land in Georgia's early land lotteries of the 1800's.

Surnames: Spell, Taylor
I am interested in the Spell family who lived in Edgecombe County then moved probably into Screven Co., GA. in the early 1800's. I believe they are connected to my Taylor family who came from Edgecombe/Nash Co., NC in the late 1790's or early 1800's and settled in Screven Co., GA.

Please contact me here or at my personal email....mjhawthorne1949@att.net
