Ferrell family before 1830's

I'm searching for descendants of William Ferrell (spelled any way you would like) who lived in Hanover township on the land left to him by his father James Ferrell from Maryland. William inherited the land, along with two brothers James and Obediah, about 1813 and sold it to a cousin, Bazil Swearingen in 1832. The land he owned was very close to the border with Virginia, probably on route 168. He also was related to the Wilcoxsons. I have been unble to find him after he sold his land. The 1820 Census shows him with four girls under 10 years, and no boys. The 1830 Census, although it is possible I'm misreading it, shows 3 boys under 10, and one over. Also shows the girls. I have no idea of his spouse's name, haven't found another thing. Does anyone know about descendants for this person?
