"On 14 March 1780, William Harrell purchased 1000 acres for 400 pounds in Jefferson County, Virginia, an area of Virginia that later became Nelson County, Kentucky (Treasury Warrant 3799). At this time, Treasury Warrants were also purchased for land in this part of Kentucky by William’s brothers Moses and James Harrell (discussed later). It is not clear when William Harrell moved but his sale of land on 9 Feb 1780 was probably his last land transaction in Frederick County The amount of property he ultimately owned in and around Nelson County, Kentucky was over 3000 acres and records show he was involved in several land transactions (none of these land transactions mentioned his spouse)."

Thank you for responding. Not sure which of the Harrell families Philip is from even from the YDNA that I have from a cousin. Do you have any evidence that Phillip is part of this family?
