In Reply to: Stell Family of Dinwiddie County, VA by Joyce S. Woodard of 497

Hello. My g g grandparents were Shadrack Stell (War of 1812)who died in 1839 and his second wife, Tabitha Coleman (died 1839).
Tabitha was pregnant with my g grandmother, Lavinia Esquelina Stell, when Shadrack died and Tabitha died also in 1839 leaving the baby an orphan. Robert Goodwyn Boisseau was named guardian for Lavinia and Lavinia later married his son, Thomas Holmes Boisseau.

Lavinia inherited land in Bear Swamp.
I'm looking for more information on Shadrack, his first wife, other children, parents, etc. I can give you the line down from Lavinia if you'd like it

Thank you. Irene Schreiner, Cape May Point,NJ
