I am looking for any information on Burwell Harrell 1815-1865 & Moses R. Harrell 1807-1876. I believe they
are brothers because I found some legal cases in James City Co. VA where they were listed together. I found a clue at a reference from a funeral home that Moses was from Nansemond Co., VA. Both of them died in James City Co./Williamsburg, VA. Moses was a sheriff in Williamsburg/James City Co., director of the Eastern State Mental Hospital there & owned some historical homes in the area. He is buried at Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg. Burwell Harrell has a will listed in James City Co. They were both farmers also.I have all of their wives & children’s names. Burwell Harrell’s wife was Mary A. Crawley 1814-1878 born & died in James City Co., VA Children were: Frances Jane Harrell 1836-1880, George W. Harrell 1840-1917 “Texas Ranger”, Sarah A. Harrell 1843-, Virginia A. Harrell 1847-1878, Mary V. Harrell 1847-, Zachary T.Harrell 1849, Taylor Harrell 1850-, Columbia Harrell 1853, Anne E. Harrell 1853-, Telemianna Harrell 1853-, Burwell Harrell 1856-. Moses Harrell’s wife was Delia 1812-1858. Children: Mary Ann Harrell 1833-1912, Moses Harrell Jr.1842-, Julia Harrell 1846-, Thomas J. Harrell 1848-. Moses is on the 1830 census for James City Co.,VA and Burwell is on the 1840 census for James City Co., VA, so they both moved to the Williamsburg/James City Co. area early in their adult lives. If anyone knows anything I would be very appreciative of some help.
Burwell is my ancestor & he has been a brick wall. Thanks!
