States: Virginia: Surry
Hi Patti, Good to hear from you about this family. My message summarizes all the documentary information I have on this Thomas Morrell that I can confidently assign to him. I have some information about the Quaker family I mention that I will be happy to share if you will give me an email address. I'm still uncertain whether this Surry County family is related to the large Virginia family that used the Murrell spelling later in the century. Thomas was a common given name in that family as well. Though I am cautious about making assumptions about "proper" spelling for surnames, I am reasonably certain that Murrell and Morrell often represent different family origins in England. It would be interesting to compare DNA markers for some of the Murrell's with Morrell lines.
