In Reply to: Re: Virginia /Maryland Gorrell's 1700's by Larry Gorrell of 910

There was an attorney, Frank Gorrell in Nashville, TN, who died several years ago, and he looked a lot like my brother, Larry, but he didn't think we were related. He was from Kentucky originally. He was LT Gov of TN back about 1970 and was a politician's politician, being consulted by people from both parties. By talking to some other Realtors (from Nashville), I was surprised by some of the similar characteristics.

I'm surprised that you didn't comment about my brother's name being Larry also. However, my sister-in-law pointed out to me that our Larry probably wouldn't have said anything either.

Maybe if we work long enough, we can make a connection way back. I have worked on this Gorrell family so much that I feel like I know them intimately.
