In Reply to: Migration of folk N.C. ,Ga., Tx.-1797-on by L.D.Rinald of 399

I have two lines of my family that came to Gonzales Co. from NC.
My Sorrell line/Flynt line: George Sorell (b. 1742 in?) was on 1766 Tax Rolls, Bute Co. NC. George was in Green and Oglethorpe Co., Ga by 1790. d. Greene Co. Ga. before 1800.
George's son, Etheldred b. 1790 Ogelthorpe Co., Ga. Etheldred lived Chamber Co., Al. 1836-1837 d. Tishamingo Co., Miss in 1839.
Etheldred's son, Walker William Sorell b. 1821 Ogelthorpe Co., Ga. Moved with father to Chambers Co., Al and then on to Tishamingo Co., Miss. Moved to Belmont, Gonzales Co., Tx. by mid 1850's.
Walker William Sorell was married to Lucy Ann Flynt, d/o John Halbert and Martha Roberts Flynt.
John Halbert Flynt was b. 1801 Stokes Co., NC. By 1810, his family was is Tn. In 1826, John Flynt married in Madison Co., Al. John Flynt was a minister, and constantly moved between Al., Tn., and MS.
John Flynt was in the 1850 Tishamingo, Ms cencus, moving to Hopkinsville, Gonzales Co. ca 1851.
My Webb line; David D.Franklin ("D.F.", "Frank") Webb was born in Rowan, NC. Oct-23-18??. ( This info varies-wife's bible says 1850- the different cencus, will info,etc. indicate 1847 and 1853) Daivd shows up in Gonzales Co., 1881 when he marries Anna Frances "Fanny" Sorell; the daughter of above Walker William Sorell. Only other info on my David Webb, is his death cert. lists his father as Madison Webb, and mother as Elvira Tucker. I can not connect any of the Webb or Tucker surnames in the area to my David Webb. No idea who David was "connected" to or why he came to Gonzales Co.
