Terrill/Terrill/Tyrrell Lines

Joshua Willis TERRILL Rev. [Parents] was born on 21 Aug 1821 in , Boone Co., Kentucky. He died on 18 May 1882 in , , Missouri. Joshua married Matilda Ann WALTON on 8 Aug 1840.

Physician & minister. Children are listed from the 1860 Howard Co. MO census; probably were more. There is an unnamed infant born in 1860 listed in census. I really wonder if there were two Joshua W. Terrill families in Howard Co. MO., as the children listed in the 1850 census do not agree with those listed in the same county under Joshua W. Terrill in 1860. The children listed under his name here are from the 1860 census. The 1850 census lists: Malinda age 25 b. Kty., Susan age 8 b. MO, Mary E. age 6 b. MO, Rebeca age 2 b. MO, and a boarder, Thomas Allen, age 22, b. MO, a physican. Joshua's occupation is given as physician also, so this young man must have been in training with him. In those days that was often the way they learned skills, rather than medical school. The 1850 census is at:

The following from "The Huntsville Herald" may be his child, but it is not likely, as he is not age 2 on the 1860 census:

Terrill, Hugh -- died 8 Sep 1873, aged about 15y, at Roanoke supposedly from heart disease, son of Joshua Terrill; THH 10 Sep 1873 (birth 1858).

There is another "Rev. J.W. Terrill" is Jessie, #2737. The most confusion however, is between this man and Joshua W. Terrill #2916.

Received this email 2/00:

I finally had a chance to go to the Missouri State Archives in Jefferson City. As I went through their limited library I found "Missouri Baptist Biography" and in Volume VI there is a biography of Rev. Joshua Willis Terrill, M.D. 1821 - 1882. He was born in Boone Co., KY Aug 21, 1821 to John and Rebecca Terrill. There was a page or two of his travels etc.

Matilda Ann WALTON [Parents] was born in 1823 in , , Kentucky. She died in 1888. Matilda married Joshua Willis TERRILL Rev. on 8 Aug 1840.

Sister of the Walton girls who married Joshua's brothers Robert and John. Another sister married Jessie Terrill. Census of 1850 Howard Co., MO shows her name as Malinda, other records show "Matilda".

They had the following children:

  M i Simeon O. TERRILL was born in 1842 in , , Missouri.

Received below 12/98 from Terrill Jones:

Joshua also had a son, Simeon O. Terrill, who was in the Civil War and was killed somewhere in Tenn. Up until recently he was sort of a mystery, but I have found that he served in the 3rd TX Cav from Kaufman Co TX where Joshua Terrill and his family moved at the start of the war.

Patrick WOODS was born in 1820. He died in 1904. Patrick married Eliza TERRILL on 7 Oct 1841 in , Howard Co., Missouri.

Eliza TERRILL [Parents] was born on 26 Feb 1824. She died in 1859. Eliza married Patrick WOODS on 7 Oct 1841 in , Howard Co., Missouri.

Eliza had 8 children, Cornelia, Edwin, John, Laura, Susan, Victor, Elizabeth & William. She was given a dod of 1859 by Stephen Willson.

They had the following children:

  F i Susan Ann WOODS

CATON was born about 1825. He married Georgia Ann TERRILL.

This spouse provided by Stephen Willson.

Georgia Ann TERRILL [Parents] was born in 1827. She died in 1900. Georgia married CATON.

Shown with parents and brother John in 1860 Grundy Co. MO records, if Ellsberry's records are correct...her age is off as she is shown as33, and it is unlikely that she would have added 10 years to her age as an eligible spinster. This may be Ellsberry's mistake in recording. Her brother John's age is off considerably also as she shows him as age 26 on census. The census may be correct, as her parents are old enough for her to be age 33.

William C. TERRILL [Parents] was born in 1829. He married Mary Susan.

He is found in the 1880 Randolph Co. Census at:

There is a W.C. Terrill in the 1870 Randolph Co. MO census about this age. But, I have entered him as #3128, however. This William (2888) had 5 children: Alice, Blanche, John Breckinridge, Cynthia & Pope.

Records of W. H. Ficklin

In 7/98 I received the following response from the lady who sent all of the information on the Ficklin line to me:

I really don't know much about my Terrill
ancestors, but I have a picture of my great grandmother Penelope Terrill.
She is an intelligent looking woman. I also have a letter written from her sister to my grandfather about genealogy. Penelope's sister married a man whose surname was Homan. When Penelope and Joseph Ficklin had a son they named him Walter Homan Ficklin. I have assumed that the Terrill family was close and they held Mr. Homan in high esteem. I will share what I can, I
know my Terrills came from Kentucky into MO and since most of the Terrills arrived in this country in VA mine probably did too.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

John Warren BAGBY Jr. was born on 13 Sep 1827. He died on 24 Feb 1885 and was buried in Roanoke Cem.. John married Elizabeth TERRILL on 11 Jul 1849 in Randolph Co., MO.

From Larry Sumpter:

Bagby, John Warren -- Captain, Co. H 3rd MO Infantry. Enlisted at Springfield 1 Jan 1862 at the age of 35, and was elected to the rank of Lt. He was at the battle of Elkhorn, AR (Pea Ridge) and crossed the river with Price. Lt. Bagby was wounded in the thigh at Farmington, MS. Promoted to Captain 8 May 1862, and after the battles of Iuka and Corinth was out of
action because of illness for most 1863. John was reassigned to Court Marshall duty for the rest of the war at Taladego, AL. John was born 13 Sep 1827 and died 24 Feb 1885 is buried at Roanoke, MO. Ref: CSR; [son of John Warren & Mildred (Ward)], 13 Sep 1827-24 Feb 1885, mar. Elizabeth (Terrill), children: David (1858-1924) mar. 1st Narcissa (Denny), mar. 2nd Cora (Underwood); burial Roanoke Cem.

The book, "Old Families of Randolph County, Missouri" says that John in 1846 enlisted "in Capt. John R. Smith's Co. destined for the Mexican War. They went to Mexico City. He was honorably discharged at Louisville, KY in Aug, 1848. From then until 1853 he worked and lived in Roanoke, MO. That year he and his family moved to Trenton, Grundy Co., MO, where he became the owner of a lucrative mercantile business. He was wounded 3 times in the Civil War. After the war, he returned to his practice of law, continued as a notary public, insurance and undertaking business.

The below is from History of Howard and Cooper Counties, 1883, found at:


Pg 568:

attorney at law and notary public. John BAGBY, the father of John W., was a native of Virginia, and was a soldier in the war of 1812. After the close of that struggle he settled in Scott county, Kentucky, where he married and lived until he came to this county with his family, in 1827. His wife was formerly a Miss Mildred WARD, and of this union John W. was born in the county where they resided in Kentucky, September 13, 1827. In early youth the son received such an education as could be had in the log school houses of those days, and when fifteen years of age went to work with his uncle, William BAGBY, in the carpentering and wagon and carriage making business, which he has followed, with considerable intervals of time devoted to other pursuits, from then until within the last few years. However, in 1846 he enlisted in Captain John R. SMITH's company, designed for the Mexican war, and followed the stars and stripes into the land of the cactus and pine to the city of Mexico. He was honorably discharged at Louisville, Kentucky, in August, 1848. From that time until 1853 he worked at his trade in Roanoke. That year he began merchandising in Trenton, Missouri, and continued in business there with excellent success until the outbreak of the war. The same spirit that animated his father in 1812, and himself in 1846, prompted him again to become a soldier of the line. He enlisted in the Confederate service, among the first that answered the bugle-call, and was of the last that left the tented field. He began as a private, and for meritorious conduct became a captain. Higher commissions were offered him, but he declined them. On two different occasions his body received the bullets that were kindly sent to restore a union of hearts as well as of sisterly, affectionate states. With the return of peace, having been broken up by the war, he returned to his trade in Roanoke. He continued to work at this until 1875, when, his health failing him, he began the practice of law, giving his attention also to conveyancing as a notary public, and to the insurance business. As a man of superior intelligence, and of an aspiring mind, he had been giving his attention to the law some years before he began to practice, and was not without substantial qualifications when he entered the profession. Captain BAGBY also conducts an undertaking business in Roanoke, in which he has been interested for some years. July 11, 1849, he was married to Miss Elizabeth TERRELL, formerly of Kentucky. They have five children: Lewis, James H., David, Robert and Bettie. The captain is a member of the Christian church, and is a Royal Arch Mason.

Pg 569:
R. J. BAGBY, M. D.,

physician and druggist. Doctor BAGBY, brother to Captain BAGBY, whose sketch precedes this, was born after his parents came to this county, September 11, 1832. His father was a substantial and highly respected farmer, and the early youth of the doctor was spent on the farm in the usual farm duties, a part of each year, however, being occupied with attending the neighborhood schools. When eighteen years of age, being then prepared to enter upon a higher course of studies, he became a student in the Fayette high school, where he continued until 1852. He then taught school one year, and immediately thereafter commenced the study of medicine under Dr. P. B. CHIDES, remaining with him one year. The following year he studied under Doctor Thomas J. BLAKE, and in 1854- 55 attended the St. Louis Medical college. After the conclusion of the college term of '55, he returned to Roanoke and engaged in the practice of his profession, since which he has followed it with only two interruptions, one of a year, during which he practised in Chariton county, and the other in the winter of 1862-63, when he attended the St. Louis Medical college, graduating in March of the succeeding spring. As a physician the doctor enjoys an excellent reputation as a skilful and successful practitioner. That his professional career has been successful in a substantial way as well as in reputation, is evidenced by his present comfortable situation in life. His drug store is a good one and commands a wide and lucrative trade. May 12, 1856, he was married to Miss Permelia TWYMAN, formerly of Virginia, but she died January 2, 1872, leaving three children: Hugh B., Walter and William H. His second wife was also a Miss TWYMAN,--Alice H. They have three children: Noble C., John W, and Robert J. W.

I received this email 8/99 from :

There were two John Bagbys with wives named Elizabeth in Randolph County...both also had the middle initial husband's family descends from the John W. Bagby who was married to Elizabeth Davidson.. this couple's son Andrew Broadus Bagby was my husband's great grandfather..

My late father in law never was able to find graves for this particular John W tho he found your John W. and thought it was his...are you confused yet? The family left Missouri and went to Nebraska shortly after 1900..Raleigh Andrew Bagby was born in Huntsville, Missouri in 1897...he was my husband's grandfather.

I did find the family in Chariton Township in the 1870 but I have not been able to find a township map that will show the towns in that area..
