Timothy Terrell and Mary Martin D7. Timothy Terrell, son of William Terrell and Susannah Waters, wasborn about 1706 in New Kent Co., Va. and died in 1763 in Orange Co. N.C.. He married, about 1734, Mary Martin b. about 1717 d. abt. 1768 in Orange Co., N. C. , daughter of Zachariah Martin Sr. and Ann ofCaroline Co., Virginia, and Orange County, North Carolina. We believe that the Mary Martin who married Timothy Terrell was the daughter of Zachariah Martin Sr.. We know that Timothy Terrell married a Mary Martin. Terrell Genealogy by Emma Dicken . Because of the close association between Timothy Terrell and Zachariah Martin Jr. see 1735 below , we feel certain that Mary was Zachariah Jr. s sister. This would make Zachariah Martin Jr. a brother in law of Timothy Terrell. Timothy Terrell and Zachariah Martin are found together in many records,including their joint entry of March 10, 1752 below. Timothy and Zachariah Martin Sr. also owned land adjacent to each other. Timothy Terrell and his brother John Terrell both moved from Virginia to North Carolina in about 1743 44.

Timothy and John settled in the area near Terrell s Creek which is near Cane Creek mentioned in several of Zachariah Martin s land transactions.
