"A few generations from our early immigrants, we find Philemon Terrell Sr. living in South Carolina. He was born about 1744 and the son of a James Terrell. Philemon Terrell Sr. purchased 100 acres of land south of Cheek's Creek in Anson County, N.C., which he sold in 1766. This land is currently located north of present day Pekin, N.C., an area of rolling hills often filled with wild flowers in the warm season.

Philemon Terrell Sr. married Elizabeth, whose maiden name is unknown. They married in the early 1770s as their first child was born about 1774. Records indicate they had 10 children: Philemon Terrell Jr., Pierce Terrell, Mary Terrell Williams, Josiah Terrell, Nancy Terrell Stanaland, John Terrell, Doriety Terrell Willcox, Elizabeth Terrell Curry, Malcolm B. Terrell, and Lucy Terrell Dees.

By 1778, Philemon Terrell Sr. had located to the area known today as Robeson County, N.C. He obtained a land grant in 1779. He owned land north of Drowning Creek and on the south side of Ten Mile Swamp. He lived on the west side of Great Swamp, which today is east of the town of Lumberton, N.C. The area is known as the "Burnt Islands" in present day Wishart Township.

Philemon Terrell Sr. and his brother Richmond BOTH served in the Revolutionary War in N.C. Philemon's Wilmington District payment voucher, #674 for Revolutionary service pay roll #500, was dated 6 July 1782 for which he received 6 pounds and 15 shillings. Voucher # 3165 indicates he later received another 15 shillings for his service.

Philemon Terrell Sr. and his brother Richmond Terrell lived next door to each other in Robeson County, as noted on the First Census of the United States taken in 1790. There was a Robert Terrell living close by, likely a relation, who had a grist mill. Philemon Terrell Sr. had received N.C. land grants in 1779, 1780, 1784, and 1791.

Both Philemon and Richmond Terrell raised their families there in North Carolina and likely received some form of bounty land in Georgia for their Revolutionary War service. On 6 October 1795, Philemon Terrell Sr. sold all four surveys of his North Carolina land.

Methods of travel in those early days was often by river, and migration over land averaged about 10 miles per day. As new territories opened up, there was an influx of settlers hoping to obtain more fertile land for agriculture and better living.

By 1800, Philemon Terrell Sr. had relocated his family to Taylor's Creek in Liberty County, Georgia. Liberty County was known for its many residents bent on the cause of Liberty, hence its name. Philemon Terrell Sr. and many of his older sons are noted as having served on juries in Liberty County. Records indicate Philemon Terrell Sr. died by early 1813, as the family sold all of his estate in 1816. Philemon Terrell Sr.'s estate included a total of 600 acres with 550 pines and 5 slaves.

It is fitting that our Revolutionary War Soldier, Philemon Terrell Sr. was likely laid to rest in Liberty County, Georgia on land that is now part of Fort Stewart U.S. Air Force Base. No marked grave exists for Philemon Terrell Sr., and security clearance into that area requires advanced planning in order to visit.

After the sale of Philemon Terrell Sr.'s estate, Elizabeth Terrell and many of the children headed west with the Ratcliff family. Philemon Terrell Jr. and his wife Margaret Ann Ratcliff from whom we descend, also relocated. The families possibly stopped for a brief period in Pulaski County, Georgia.

A story from the Texas branch of this family tells of how the family left Fort Mims, Alabama prior to the famous Creek Indian "Massacre of Fort Mims". This massacre occurred on 30 August 1813.

The family first appears on records in Marion County, Mississippi, and then on tax rolls in Covington County. Elizabeth Terrell died after 1824 in Mississippi, yet estate records on her have not yet been located if any do exist."

Elizabeth was born about 1740. She married Philemon TERRILL.

They had the following children:

  M i Richmond TERRILL was born about 1775.
  M ii Philemon TERRILL Jr.
