In Reply to: Ignatius Terrell, as JP of Pike co., Georgia by B. Terrell of 3243

Am trying to find info regarding Ignatius -- my interest is heightened by the fact that my ancestor, William Jones Terrell b 1822 d after 1900 TX married Eliza Dodson in Wilkes Co GA whose father was Thomas Ignatious Dodson who died 1817 in Wilkes County. The name "Ignatious" is unusual and when it subsequently appears, I can't help but wonder about the family connections. William Jones Terrell and Eliza Dodson Terrell had a son named Charles whose middle initial was either "I" or "J" (you know how similar those letters can look in old hand-written papers) -- "Jones" is a name in our Terrell family line (Penelope Jones was the wife of Peter Buford Terrell, parents of Charles J. or I. Terrell).

We believe "our" Charles J. or I. Terrell moved to Coweta County, GA, before or around 1850 -- supposedly he died before 1851 but we have been unable for years to locate a death record or burial place. Charles' brother, Joel Terrell, was the first physician in Newnan, Coweta Co., GA, and Joel's family migrated to Texas after 1851.

Will be interested in any developments!
