My great-grandmother was Etta May Gorrell was the daughter of Archimedes W. Gorrell and Annie Lock Gorrell. She married William Daniel Thomas with whom she had seven children, two of whom did not live past a year of age. The living children were: Mary Myrtle (my grandmother), Frederick H., Saul, Walter H., and Archie Wm. By 1899, the children were all orphaned when both parents died, not together but about 18 months apart. The eldest was 11 and the youngest was one year old. They were "parcelled" out to family and neighbors, with my grandmother, the oldest two boys and one cousin going to live with their grandparents, A. W. and Annie. One boy lived with a neighbor and is listed as a "servant" in the 1900 census. The last boy was taken in by another family and grew up there, not really knowing his parents.

It's a sad story, really, because most of the boys had hard, or at least, unhappy lives.
Uncles Fred and Walt were in WW1 and both returned in tact. They each married but Uncle Fred was divorced and then remarried to two other women. Uncle Walt remained married and became the father of two sons.

Uncle Saul went out West to Montana where he was a hired hand on several ranches where he died without wife or children. I don't hav a lot of information on Uncle Archie. He did marry and had at least one son.
