The Ezell Families of the Lawrence CoTN & Lauderdale CoAL Areas.

Alabama ~ Missouri ~ South Carolina ~ Tennessee Virginia

This Page last updated: 02/26/06

Excerpts from The Families of Timmons Seburn & Mary Catherine Urban Literal: Appendix 11: Ezell/Comer

The spouses of James Carroll Littrell and John Daniel Littrell were 1st cousins to each other, establishing a dual relationship with each other for their descendants. James Littrell’s wife Donie Ezell and John Littrell’s wife Kizzie Comer were 9th generation descendants of Timothy Ezell (d.1696) of Surrey County, Virginia.

Between 1750 and 1830 the great great grandchild of Timothy, William Ezell (and Susannah Seat) relocated from Surrey County to Union County, South Carolina. Several of their children would migrate to the south-central Tennessee area.

Hobart H. Ezell, the grandson of William & Susannah, was the grandfather of both Donie and Kizzie.

There are at least three branches of the Littrell family that are also descendants of the Ezell family. Two of them descend from the sons of Timmons Seburn Literal: James Carroll and John Daniel; and the other from George Literal's [the brother of Timmons] son Edward Littrell, Sr.

Suzie Louisa Littrell & Richard Benjamin Smith

Berryhill ~ Colvert ~ Freeze ~ Gray ~ Springer ~ Smith ~ Yocum

Alabama ~ Tennessee ~ Virginia

Suzie Louisa Littrell & Richard Benjamin Smith lived on the Powell Place, on Bluewater, and farmed for Allen Littrell (Suzie’s 1st cousin). They then moved into Richard’s mothers’ house (Mary Malinda Powel Smith), that was built high of the ground and goats slept under it at night.

Richard then bought some nearby land from John Urban (?), cut lumber and built a three-room house.

The family got their water from a spring on Jim Urban's land.

The children went to school at Blue Springs (Fairview), a one-room schoolhouse with 8 Grades. All their chores had to be done after school.

After Suzie died in 1942, her daughter (Annie Belle Smith~Springer) and husband moved in with Richard and helped him farm the land. In 1947 when Annie Bell and Frank bought their own land, Richard and his mother moved in with them.[1]

Richard was a farmer and served as Constable and Susie was a mid-wife.
