I have a Durnal in my ancestry and can't trace beyond her. I was wondering if you could help?? Could Durnal be an alternate spelling of Durnell? Here is what I know about her:
Hannah DURNAL, b. 9 May 1810, Fayette Co., PA; d. 12 May 1885, Flora, Clay Co., IL; m. 1 Jun 1830 in OH to William BIRCH (b. 1807, d. 1852, who ran for gov. of OH in 1852 but died before elections) NOTE: "Mr. Durnal, Hannah's father, served in the Revolutionary War under Washington, and was excommunicated from the Quaker Church because of this service." "was so much shorter than (her husband) that she could stand under his arm pit when his arm was extended out horizontally. She was not only handsome, but very religious and it is said she did much personal evangelistic work. ... She lived to a good old age, cared for in her latter years by her children..."
Thanks for your time and any help you might be able to give.
