On 3 April 1857 Benedict ISelz (or Esale in 1870 US Census-PA-Adams Co.-Union Twp.) purchased the 20 remaining acres more or less of the original 23 acres owned by Kaspar Weissenseel in Union Twp. for $750.
I wanted to make the Ezell family aware of this surname.  Adams Co. Courthouse Bk X page 146.  The document has Benedict ISelz; however, the Index has Benedict Easley.  Maybe there is a connection between Ezell and these surnames ISelz and Esale?

My Ezell pedigree is:

Harriett Ann Ezell m. William Dugget Kelton

Daughter Nancy Jane Kelton m. Clayborn Sanders

Granddaughter Zeffie Catherine Sanders m. Creed Lindsey

Great granddaughter Delvina Lindsey m. James Enfinger

Living Enfinger m. Living Dunn

Finally me.

All living names are protected due to privacy reasons. I have several different sources telling me different names for Harriet's father. I am unsure if it is William Ezell m. Eveline Jones or if it is Charles or Timothy. Does anyone on here know?

I have no yDNA test for this lineage. I am in process of transferring my atDNA to FTDNA and getting an mtDNA, kit B11852.

I am interested in discovering the ancestry of my Ezell lineage, here is what I know so far, and the first two are not well documented:

James Essell/Ezell Sr., b. 1730 Surry Co., VA, d. 1800 Orange Co., NC, m. Unknown

James Ezell/Uzzell Jr., b. 1750 Isle of Wight Co., VA, d. 1825 Grainger Co., TN, m. NC to Unknown, c. George, Jesse and Solomon

Solomon Ezell, b. 1797 Orange Co., NC d. ? in TN m. Apr 1816 Grainger Co., TN to Mary Patterson c. Sarah Sally, Drury and John

Sarah Sally Ezell, b. 1818 Grainger Co., TN d. ? in TN m. Feb 1837 Knox Co., TN to George Koons/Koontz 

Sarah Sally Ezell Koontz was my 3rd great grandmother.

I think my lineage could tie to several men named George Ezell and possibly Timothy Ezell, but I have not found good documentation tying my two James' to the George's and Timothy.
