My great grandmother was Mary NORVELL, born in Linn Co. 11 Apr 1873. She married George Irwin SMITH, and died 8 Aug 1903. Their children were Walter Alva (my grandfather) and Edith Jane.

Records found in LDS database show James S. NORVELL, b 4 Apr 1847 in Haseville, as the father of Mary. I have history going back another 5 generations from James, if anyone is interested in that line. However, my father remembers the father of Mary to be Thomas NORVELL, buried in Humphreys, MO, Sullivan Co. I can find nothing on Thomas, and was hoping someone may have info. Just e-mail if anyone wants my data on James S. NORVELL, son of Seth NORVELL and Francis (Fannie) HAWKINS- parents of Seth were Frances NORVELL and Nancy RAMSEY- parents of Nancy were Seth RAMSEY and Lucy HIATT- parents of Lucy were William HIATT and Tabitha NOEL- parents of Tabitha were Joseph NOEL and Mary CAVE.

Great history if it´s your family, but I have to find for certain the parents of Mary NORVELL. Any help?

Noah married Elizabeth Catharine on 2-25-1860 and moved away from what was Mercer Co., PA (now Lawrence Co., PA ) sometime after the 1860 census. Noah DEAN was the son of Noah (b.1804-d.1870)& Elizabeth (b.1802-d.1884) (Emery) DEAN; both buried at Unity Baptist Church, Lawrence Co., PA. I have "tons" of information on Noah DEAN´s family, but I know little on his branch. I would love to "share" information on this DEAN family.
