I am a new subscriber and am interested in exchanging info on the
FERRILL/FERRELL family as well as the MARIOTT family.
My Bynum FERRELL was found in Hickman Co. in 1840 Census but I
understand that in 1845 Fulton Co. was formed.
Next door to Bynum FERRELL in 1840, is B.B. MARIOTT...
Does anyone know anything about this MARIOTT family? I am fairly
confident that they are connected to my Wm. H. MARIOTT, who mar.
Matilda FERRELL abt 1838. Since their first child was born in Kentucky,
I am curious regarding these families.
Any help is appreciated!

I am glad to be able to finally be able to announce that the Graves County
Order Book G Page Images with Every Name Index CD-ROM is available for
This CD contains individual images of all 652 pages in the Graves County
Circuit Court Order Book G, covering the 1853-1856 time frame, as well as
an every-name index to the entries in that book. There are over 3000
entries indexed. In addition, the Index has clickable links to each page
image(many thanks again to Don Larson for this improvement), and the Index
itself has been extensively revised and corrected(with thanks to Cheri
Casper for her work in this area). This material constitutes the earliest
existing county based records for Graves County, since the December 1887
courthouse fire destroyed 99% of all county records.
The CD will function on Windows or MAC operating systems, and offers the
user the choice of "automatic" clickable links from the Index directly to
the page images via a web browser(Internet Explorer or Netscape will
operate with this feature), or the "manual" approach, in which the user can
open each page image through any image file viewer, such as MS Paint, Adobe
Photoshop, or any other such program.
This CD represents literally hundreds of hours of work in the part of our
volunteer indexers, myself, and our beta testers and other contributors
over a two and a half year period.
Subscribers to the lists which I host are offered the opportunity to obtain
this CD at a discounted cost of $12.00(the general public will be asked to
pay $15.00), which includes First Class shipping. The CD will be packaged
in a "slimline" jewel case for protection and will be appropriately labeled
on its surface, with instructions included on accessing the information.
Please e-mail me off-list for any further information and for the address
to which to send payments.
