In 1801, Nehemiah SCOTT (son of Joseph and Mary SCOTT) died, leaving his estate to his siblings. No will has been found, but a deed dated 25 March 1801 in Sampson Co., NC lists his "heirs" as his surviving brother Joseph SCOTT and brothers-in-law Willis MAGEE, Jacob CHESNUTT, Stephen CARRELL, Thomas PAGE, and Edward BYRD. Which of Nehemiah SCOTT's sisters was married to Stephen CARRELL -- Ada, Peggy, or Jerusha? Jerusha had previously been married to a MURPHY/MURPHREE, and I know that she was still living in 1801, but neither she nor a MUPRHY/MURPHREE were mentioned, so I suspect she had remarried to either Edward BYRD or Stephen CARRELL (the wives of the other men have been identified).

Does anyone out there know how this particular Stephen CARRELL was connected to the SCOTT family?
