Pioneers of Wiregrass GA
Posted by: Wayne Harrell (ID *****9091) Date: August 28, 2002 at 03:45:35
In Reply to: Settlers of Wiregrass Georgia, Do you know the book? by J. Timothy Harrell of 4843

There are only three main Harrell Family listings in the first six books of a set of at least ten books. As my local library only has the first nine and I've only gotten into the first six to check I can't say what might be in 7 to 9... I did have a link to Folks Huxfolds site but for some reason I can't get it to open. Don't know if it's the site or my old computer acting up on me again.
This is a listing of all HARRELL links that found in the pile of info got out of Pioneers Wiregrass Georgia Volumes I to VI. I've noted where each was found as (POWGAV#P#) and highlighted the three main HARRELLs found with --------->>>> before them. As was looking for a Mississippi link also picked up some related surnames where Harrell married into the family, some of these have been connected to either William, Francis, or Levi who are the main three in POWGA and others to Asa a fourth known full brother and even possibly to Lovett a known half brother......
