My mother was born in Bertie County on Jan. 15, 1912. Her name was Edna Earl Harrell. She was daughter of Joe Harrell and Mary Alice Thomas Harrell. In 1924 she visited cousins in Norfolk that lived on Chesapeake St. at Ocean View. Her reference was to cousin Brax and cousin Besse. I believe that one of the Braxton Harrell daughters was Iris Harrell. Braxton was apparently my grandfathers cousin. D. Harold Davenport

Jim: John was the oldest child and I remember he was married to aunt Lu. They lived in Norfolk in old age and uncle John visited my grandmother Mary Alice Harrell often. I believe that Agnes Hood was uncle John's daughter. There was also a Ted Thomas who I believe was Agnes's younger brother. Since my parents deaths I have lost touch with the Thomas family. Alice Deal and Joe Harrell, my cousins, and I are trying to trace the Thomas family and the Harrell family. We can't seem to get anywhere with the Harrells but believe we could learn more about the Thomases. Mike Thomas still lives on uncle Jeppy's farm, now Mikes, but I have not talked to hime in years. David Hoggard lives near Mike and told me Mike does not have much information on either the Thomases or the Harrells. Bessie Bruce, Mike's sister is still living in Washington, NC but again I haven't talked with her. Alice, my sister and I plan a trip to Windsor in the spring to see what we can digup. Janis Richeal, Braxton Harrell's granddaughter is working on the Harrells as well. We are bounf to comeup with something. Thanks for your response. I will share anything I come up with. D.

Dear Janis, wanted to know if you are looking for ancestors on your Father's side or your Mother's? I married into the Harrell family, and need to know if there is any relationship. Thanks Robert.

I read mention of a Thomas-Harrell get together in the fall. Is that something that is still going on? I am a descendant of Michael Thomas, his son Everett Jordan Thomas is my Great Grandfather. It would be nice to attend such a gathering with my father, he has lost touch with most of the Thomas family since moving to Virginia in the late 60's.
