In Reply to: Re: Cornelius SALE in NC was NOT the son of Nancy "Shell" by Deborah Shelton-Wood of 1032

Just wanted to add this info to what I already stated (the previous email} regarding the Jacob SHELL family in Montgomery Co VA. For anyone who is interested:

From the Virginia Tech Library
"SHELL FAMILY. PAPERS, 1871-1932. 0.1 cu ft. Includes a typescript copy of a sketch of the Shell or "Schull" family, early settlers of Montgomery County, Virginia. Originally dictated by John H. Shell in 1871. Centers around Jacob Shell (1720-1803), who came to the Price's Fork section of Montgomery County in the mid-eighteenth century. Mentions other early settlers, Indian raids, and the Indian captivity of "Mrs. English" and "Mrs. Bingamen." The two-page transcript was made in 1959 by Vernon McT. Shell of Arden, North Carolina. Also includes correspondence of Bernard Shell concerning Shell family history, together with related typescript notes, newsclippings and ephemera. Ms59-001."
