U.S. States: Maryland: Talbot County
My ancestor A. G. Rathell b. 1808 Baltimore, MD died in MS 1871. On the Holmes Co., MS census of 1850 he is 42 listed with Mary 28 b. VA and several children under 10. I have found some Rathells in this area of MD, but no connection yet.
Also, I have found a possible descendant of A. G. in Holmes Co., MS b. 1877 named Abel Grace Rathell. This sounds like a distinctive name possibly a maternal grandfather or something. There were some Abel Graces listed on the LDS site from Talbot Co.,MD and St. Peter's Parish. There must be some connection there.
