Richard G. Terrell, wholesale grocer of Paducah, Kentucky, was born in
Ballard county, Kentucky, April 14, 1844. His parents were Thomas F. and
Mary (Fletcher) Terrell. His paternal grandfather was Chiles Terrell, a
practical surveyor, who came from Virginia to McCracken county, Kentucky,
as early as 1826, with his son J.H. Terrell, then eleven years of age, and
surveyed a large portion of the land in said county. Chiles Terrell was no
ordinary man. He was highly educated. After doing the above mentioned
surveying he returned to Virginia, and in the year 1827 he removed to
Louisville, Kentucky, and in 1828 was professor of mathematics in the
Jefferson Seminary. He came to McCracken county in 1839, and died here in
1851, aged seventy-one years. He married Mary C. Upshaw, who died in 1836.

Their son, Thomas F. Terrell, was born in Richmond, Virginia, but was
reared on a farm in Jefferson and McCracken counties, Kentucky, in both of
which counties his father farmed in his latter days. Thomas F. Terrell was
born January 13, 1820. When twenty-three years of age he married and
settled in Ballard county, of which county he served as sheriff, and which
he afterward represented in the legislature. In 1856 he removed to Paducah
and there became a prominent business man and esteemed citizen.

Richard G. Terrell was educated in Paducah and at the Washington and
Lee University, of Virginia. In 1868, in connection with W.H. Bradley, he embarked in the produce and seed business in Paducah, and four years later succeeded to the ownership of the entire business. His business gradually increased, agricultural implements were added and then groceries, and
to-day he ranks among the leading wholesale grocers of Kentucky.

In 1873 Mr. Terrell married Miss Mildred, daughter of Colonel Thomas
J. Pickett. In his home and domestic relations Mr. Terrell is a beloved husband and father, among business men he is esteemed for his sapient
business qualities, and by his fellow citizens he is held in high regard in consequence of his genial deportment and real worth as a progressive and public-spirited citizen."

Arthur was also in the Confederate 5th Kentucky Cavalry, Company F, in
the Civil War. He was captured and held prisoner at Camp Douglas, Chicago.
The Captain for Company F was Geroge TERRILL. I believe this is the George
W. TERRILL that served in the Kentucky legislature at a point in time after
the Civil War (based on a brief biographical sketch I have read). I also believe that George was Arthurs uncle, brother of Reuben.
