Descendants of William Sr. Harrell (~1740-1750)

JACOB HARRELL is speculated to be the father of WILLIAM SR. HARRELL, however proof of this is lacking. We believe that JACOB was born bet. 1710-1720 in VA, and that he married MARTHA CALFEE, who we believe was born bet. 1711-1715. We include Jacob and Martha here for suggested consideration, and further study is needed.
