I have been tryiing to research family roots, but unfortunately, "Live" members of the family that I know of only remember information going back a little ways. My Grandfather was James Herman Stell, Sr. from either Fordyce Arkansas or Little Rock Arkansas. My father, James Herman Stell Jr. is James H. Stell, Sr.'s son, who currently resides in West Lynn Oregon. I know he had brothers and sisters, a few of which I have meet and know their names, Randolf, Margie, Raymond, and I think Ruth was another one. I knowJames married Vera Ruth Brandon, sister of Zac and Fred Brandon (the only two I have met or known of, though I believe there were more) also of either Fordyce or Little Rock. I know Vera has ties to the Brandons of Virginia of which I believe there is still a plantation home in operation to this day. Can you please let me know if this person was part of your research and if you have further information regarding this branch of the Stell family?
