I meant to elaborate further, and got distracted. John William STELL, b. 1827 in Tennessee, m. 24 Jul 1851 to Mary Jane PARK (b. 1836 in Arkansas, d/o King Cyrus Alexander PARK and Mahala Watts (Watz?) TUMLINSON) was the son of Henry King STELL, b. 1801 in South Carolina, and Elizabeth ?, (b. 1801 in South Carolina); the son of John Wesley STELL, III b. 17 Sep 1776 in Newberry Co., South Carolina, and and Elizabeth KING (b. 1776, d/o Robert KING and Sally SMITH); the son of John STELL, Jr. b. 18 Feb 1733/34 or 43/44 in Keighly, Yorkshire Co., England, m. 1764/5 (1762?) in Amelia Co., Virginia, to Susannah MALONE (b. 1744 in Amelia Co., Virginia, d/o Col. Robert MALONE and Mary HARRISON). My notes indicate John Stell served as "Private-Sgt. in Revolutionary War - South Carolina, Capt. William Smith's Co., Col. John Thomas; Reg, Sumpter's Brig., 96th District, (Cape Fear, South Carolina)". I'm not sure what all those abbreviations mean, I'll have to research it.

What makes it interesting is that Henry King had an older brother named Henry Dennis, and John Wesley had an older brother named John Dennis, all of which had children of their own. I think most researchers assume duplication, and throw out one of them, usually my ancestors, not the other branch.
