Jackson Morton TERRILL [Parents] was born about 1842. He died about 1898. Jackson married Margaret.

Margaret was born about 1845. She married Jackson Morton TERRILL.

They had the following children:

  M i Luther E. TERRILL was born about 1868. He died in Hodgenville, , Kentucky.
  F ii Lucy TERRILL was born about 1870.
  F iii Elizabeth TERRILL was born about 1872.
  F iv Essie TERRILL was born about 1874.

Felix Larkin TERRILL [Parents] was born about 1848 in , , Kentucky. He died in De Leon, Comanche Co., Texas.

Said to have settled in Comanche Co. Texas following the civil war and presumed to have died there. His descendants are still in the area.

He had the following children:

  M i David L. TERRILL was born about 1876 in , Comanche Co., Texas.
  F ii Lillie TERRILL
  F iii Stella TERRILL was born about 1880 in , Comanche Co., Texas.

Richard TERRILL [Parents] was born in 1826 in , , Virginia. He married Isabel.

Found in the 1850 Washington Co. MO census. The below was posted 8/99 to Terrill group:

"Seeking info on this family from Washington Co., MO.
Elizabeth Relfe ROBINSON married Richard TERRILL/Washington Co., MO in 1848. Believe they were in Calaveras Co. CA by ca 1853, in NV (or maybe Inyo Co?) ca 1866, back in CA (LA county) 1870 to 1880. Family members next show in the census of 1900/Merced Co. CA until at least 1920.

Believe they had the following children:
Mary Jane b ca 1849/MO
Elizabeth b ca 1853/CA
Frank b ca 1856/CA
Sarah Ann b ca 1862/CA
William b ca 1867/NV?
Susan b ca 1869/NV?
Richard b ca 1871/CA
Jessie (female) b ca 1872/CA

Richard TERRILL must have died sometime after the census of 1880/Los Angeles County and before the family shows in the census of Merced Co. 1900; have located no death certificates thus far. Elizabeth died after the census of 1900/Merced Co. and before the 1910/Merced Co. census; have found no death record for her either.

At least two of their sons stayed in Merced Co. after 1910, as they show in the census of 1920 with families of their own: Richard TERRILL Jr. married Rose ca 1892/Merced? and Frank marreid Kate ca 1898/Merced?

Their daughter, Elizabeth TERRILL, I believe married Hiram J LENT/1874 in Independence, Inyo Co. CA (then fairly near Aurora NV) and I believe they show in 1880 census of Los Angeles Co., then they disappear until Hiram shows as a widower in census of 1900/Inyo Co. CA. No death record for Elizabeth either.

I am trying to find a death or burial or obit record for the parents, Elizabeth and Richard TERRILL, in order to verify that their daughter Elizabeth was Elizabeth who married LENT.

Does anyone know this family from Washington County???? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!"

The same person posted the following, who was perhaps a son of the this couple:

"Who knows the following TERRILL family in Merced County, CA?
ELLIS, Alphie, age 22 born CA, of Merced, married
TERRILL, William T, age 27 born CA, of Merced
July 18, 1894 in Merced: Witnesses were John KEYS and David ELLIS of Merced

I am researching the TERRILL family in Merced. Yesterday I found the probable family of ELLIS that William TERRILL married as follows:

1880/Merced Co. CA, Township 9S, Range 12E; 6-19-1880; ED 44/22:
ELLIS, Thomas 51 stockraiser TN KY VA
Margaret 27/TX LA LA
David L 10/CA TN TX
George W 9/CA TN TX
Alpha A 7
James L 6
Mary F 5
Thomas J 2
Lizzie 3/12"

But, when I wrote and asked her, I got this reply. If anyone can help her, please write:

"Hello John:

Yes, I did note that there was that other census entry for Richard and Isabelle and dau, Mary J. in Washington Co., MO. Although I don't have my file in front of me right now, I do remember that I finally decided that
that Richard and Isabelle and the Richard and Elizabeth Relfe ROBINSON TERRILL also with a daughter Mary J, were two different couples. I think it was because I found Richard and Isabelle in the 1870 census in St. Louis (I think) and my Richard and Elizabeth in 1870/Los Angeles CA census.

I also did note the Richard TERRILLS you have posted on your site, but never contacted you as I felt my Richard was not the same as yours.

I do admit that it is strange that their ages are similar, names similar, and that both had a dau Mary J born the same year!!!"

Isabel was born in 1831 in , , Missouri. She married Richard TERRILL.

They had the following children:

  F i Mary Jane TERRILL was born in 1850 in , Washington Co., Missouri.

Shown as age 2/12 on census.

William TERRILL [Parents] was born on 15 Oct 1838. He died on 29 Dec 1907. William married FARLEY.

Other marriages:
QUISENBERRY, Susan Margaret

Line down from a descendent, who did not know William's father. I have placed him under James, as we had no wife for the William known to be under James, but connection has not really been proven for this line to James. It is known that William married second to a widow by the last name of Farley (her married name); since her husband was killed in the Civil War and the two children listed for William were born after 1880, there is a good chance that this line comes from his second wife and not his first.

FARLEY was born about 1840. She married William TERRILL.

Farley was her married name; she was a widow who had lost her husband in the Civil War.

Was Maries County surveyor. Family history says that he moved with his father's family as a young lad to the vicinity of Grove Dale in what was then Osage Co., MO. He studied hard and was a school teacher for 7 years before becoming an expert surveyor. His surveying notes and instruments are still in the family. He married Fannie after he met her while she was visiting from VA with her father some relatives in MO. They made their home in eastern Maries Co., MO, where all of their children were born. They are shown there in the 1880 census, and probably others also.
