My great great great grandfather, Edward S. Terrell was born 24 May 1812 somewhere in Maury County in western Tennessee to Martha (Stevenson) and George C. Terrell. He married on 9 February 1834 in Madison County in east-central Kentucky. He died 3 November 1908 in Graham, Young County, Texas and is buried in the True cemetery in Graham.

His parental family must have moved sometime between 1805, when a brother was born in Kentucky, and 1812 when Ed was born in Maury County, Tennessee. They must have moved again prior to 1819 when another brother was born even farther west in Tennessee, in Gibson County. Later Ed evidently made his own way to Madison County, Kentucky where he married in 1834.

The couple had two girls -- one born in late 1836 and one in the spring of 1838. Not knowing what to do Ed farmed them out to friends and realtives and set out for the southwest. By 1843 he was in the Fort Worth, Texas area. In 1845 he remarried and from 1846-1867 he and his second wife had at least 9 children. 1849-1853 he was at the Fort Worth miliary post. He had a wide reputation as a great baker and an even better story teller. During 1856-1869 he was a saloon keeper in Fort Worth and by 1873 he was the marshall in Fort Worth. He died on 3 November 1908 at Graham in Young County, Texas.
