I am trying to find the parents of Henry Jackson Sorrells, my great-great grandfather. He was born in October, 1836 in Haywood County. He married Adrah E. Cathey, daughter of William Cathey and Hannah Dyer, November 12, 1856. Henry served with the 25th NC Regiment, CSA, Company F as a Corporal. He died at Petersburg, Virginia July 30, 1862. His children were: Robert Henry Sorrells b. Nov. 16, 1857 and Alice Sorrells b. Oct 1, 1859. In Haywood County court 1843 he was bound to H.J. McClure from a John Felmet. There is a possibility that his mother was Elizabeth Sorrels.
