Polly Hopson Harrell (1788-after 1870), wife of Drury Harrell (about 1870-1839), and mother of Auguston Harrell (b about 1818 died unknown, possibly killed by riverboat captain), grandmother of Jacob W(1845-1898)and Drew Hamilton Harrell (1859-1909), great-grandmother of William Perry Harrell (1873-1957) and Susan Priscilla (Dollie)Harrell (1879-1937).

Photo of Ron Wright (son of Ola Harrell Wright) and Whitey Caldwell during one of their famous wrestling matches. Ron and Whitey were big draws in the Tennessee/Western North Carolina area wresting arenas. Ron was heavy weight champ and tag team champ, along with brother Don, many times. The blood was real.
Back row - Myrtle, Charlie, Mattie Middle -Ella, William P, Dollie, Harvey Wolfe (he lived for a time in the household) Front - Ola, Willie (on Dollie's lap) In photo - Lonnie (deceased) Photo was taken somewhere around 1914
Susan Priscilla Harrell's funeral. First row is Grandpa William Perry Harrell, Laura Ola Harrel, Willie Harrell Pease,the little girl is Jean Wright, daughter of Ola Harrell & Everett Wright , the woman looking to her left behind them is Ella Harrell Wright. I believe the woman between Grandpa and Ola is Mattie Harrell Henard . In the background can be seen Luther Henard (dark hair, heavyset) almost directly behind Grandpa, Ted Harrell (behind white hat)and Guy Harrell to his left. Also William Wright (husband of Ella)right behind and looking over Ted's shoulder. The man on the right of the picture, pointing to Ella, is Charlie Harrell.
The headstone of William Perry and Dollie Harrell. Her name was actually Susan Priscilla Harrell, and she was the daughter of Drew Hamilton and Thursie Anne Janeway Harrell. So her married name was Susan Priscilla Harrell Harrell! (Yes, she and W P were 1st cousins)She was always known as Dollie.
Grandmother Dolly Harrell at the homeplace. She died in 1937, so no real idea when this was taken. Her parents were Drew Hamilton Harrell and Thursie Anne Janeway. She married William Perry Harrell.
