I'm doing research on my Great-Great-Grandfather an African-American name George Terrell born 1840 in Mississippi married to Susan Terrell born ab 1855. I do not know which county so that makes it even harder to pinpoint my search. I know they migrated to Tyler Texas (Smith County) about 1867 and I have all the information on them from that time period foward.
What I need help on is information during their slave period in Mississippi. George father came from NC and mother from TN. I know there where some white and black Terrell in and about MS during that time frame. Any informations or leads great or small would be most greatly appreciated.
