William TERRILL [Parents] was born about 1754 in , Albemarle Co., Virginia. He married Martha WINSTON.

See Dicken for all descendants.
Ellsberry gives the following, which may be this William and may not, but the names are similar; I quote exactly from her Bulletin re: Wm's Rev. War service: "In Consideration of service performed by William Terrill (she spells it Terrell as she does all of this line, and it is hard to tell what it is actually spelled in the document), a Lieut. for three years in the Virginia line. Granted to Walter Dun assignee of Thomas Green who was the assignee of ELEANOR, ANN, LUCY, REBECCA, MARY, MALVINA, and MARTHA TERRILL, and Daniel F. Carr and EMILY his wife late EMILY TERRILL, heirs and devisees of WILLIAM TERRILL deceased and assignees of MARTHA (Mother) RICHMOND, ELEANOR, ANN, LUCY, REBECCA, MAY, MALVINA and MARTHA TERRILL (the sister) and Daniel F. Carr and Emily his wife heirs at law of DOROTHEA TERRILL deceased who was one of the heirs and devises of the said William Terrill, deceased, a tract of land of 185 acres on part of Military Warrent No. 6522 in favor of Robert Green as assignee of heirs of Wm. Terrill, the whole being 1000 acres, land on the waters of Darby's Creek. Sept. 28, 1830. (signed) Pres. Andrew Jackson." A note I found elswhere states that Miss Mary Olive Murray of the Jane Douglas Chap. D.A.R. in Dallas Texas, claims William as Rev. War ancestor. Don't know connection.

Martha WINSTON was born about 1755. She died in 1830. Martha married William TERRILL.

Another source calls her "Patsy Winston"
At the Hanover Co., VA GenWeb page, under wills, is information about a law suit re the mother and brothers and sisters of Martha.

Among the persons named were Obediah Terrill. In "Tennessee the Volunteer State, Vol. I, p. 103" in referring to the Cumberland settlement said, "Of those who are known and who made some impress of their presence was Obediah Terrell among eleven persons named" In the first volume, p. 455, the author told of three men were killed in the year 1781 in that section of Tennessee by parties of Indians, including Timothy Terrill of N.C. In 1755 and 1756 in the tax list in Orange Co., N.C. was a Timothy Terrill and a Obediah Terrill.
