Comments:
Sorry let me give a little more info. I moved to California many years ago with my father Horace. The only relative we knew out in CA was Dorothy Rochelle Sahli, my grandfathers sister. We lost her a few years ago. God bless her, she use to talk of many relatives in NC and Ohio. I just came across a Richard Rochelle line living close to me and trying to figure the connection if at all to our family. My father thinks it is from Thomas Rochelle.

Earliest known ancestor? Luther Dennis Rochelle
Birth & Death? 15 January, 1971
Comments:
I have a bit of scattered notes from a great uncle Hubert Rochelle, Son of Luther and Emily Rochelle. Hubert did a LOT of Rochelle history research 30-40 years ago and I have some excerps from that research. There are some assumptions made dating back to the late 1400's but some seem legit. I would like to piece the puzzle together and may be able to help you with the Luther branch to present. Luther had six kids and one of those was my grandfather Dennis Estol Rochelle (brother of Hubert#. My grandfather Dennis also had six kids. Those six produced 22 grandchildren and I believe the number of great-grandchildren is somewhere near 40. Anyway, I think I have some good info to help connect us to you.

Earliest known ancestor? Ethrington Rotchel
Comments:
Hi Sloan! Been some time since we chatted on the Rotchel family connection associated with my spouse's Harvey lines of MS to TX. My spouse, Les Shroyer, Mason Co., TX, is related to Lewis Franklin Harvey son of Geo. Barnett Harvey (1819 KY - 1894 TX) & wife, Emily Allen MaHon 1833 AL - 1912 TX. Levy B. (Blaylock??) Harvey 1825 MS - ???19?? TX married Ethrington's dau. who had moved to TX.

Ben Hare, a wonderful cousin of OK is now deceased and not sure about his wife, Carol. We were all shocked to hear about Ben's death. Janie Glenn Lemmons, of Harper,TX related to Lewis F. Harvey line is also deceased as of 2002 (Dec. 24) and buried next to her spouse, Geo. Lemmons at Harper City Cemetery at Harper, TX. They are missed also.
D'Alva Glenn Harvey, my mother-in-law, sister of Janie Lemmons, died 24 April 2001 in Corpus Christi, TX and is buried next to her spouse and dau., Kay Lynne Shroyer at Live Oak Cemetery in Brady, TX. Biddy Glenn Harkrider is currently working and living back in Brady, TX, a sister to Janie and D'Alva and a Harvey relative. I don't have photos of the Levy B. Harvey family, but do for the Lewis Franklin Harvey clan. If you would like to place some info on the Harvey connections to your Rotchels online here I'd be happy to assist you. Thanks..nice to see the websites that connect to the Rotchels. Am working with Mr. Joe Bunch of Lockhart, TX on his SAR papers that connect to Boney (Boni), New and Wells lines of New Hanover, NC. If anyone connects to Joe email me at TxJean@aol.com.

Comments:
I am 6th child of Carrean Rachels. Because of his poor peminship, when he started work at American Steel in E. St. Louis, Ill., the s on the end of Rachels was mistaken as another l, so his payroll and Social Security name was spelled Rachell.

They had 8 Children, Bryce Mayo, 1925, Betty Carleen,1927,Philip Herron,1929, Bernice Dean,1931, Max Dale,1937,James Roger, 1941, Billy Gene,1944, and Monty Allan,1949..The only ones still living are James, Dale, and Bill.

My Grandfather, Charles R. Rochel was born in Texas, July 31 1889. He was a twin. As children they lived in Paris Tx, before moving to Oklahoma. My grandfather had a brother, William Etherington, which leads me to believe we may be part of your family tree, since Etherington seems to be a popular name in the Rochel family. I have no other information other than Franklin's mom's first name was Nancy and she was from Tennessee. You can call me at 706-854-1823. I live in Evans GA

I am decended through Alsey A. Rochelle. I stumbled, purely by accident, onto your website while doing online research on my husband's North Carolina ancestors. I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me to see information about my mother's family. I have never had very much information on her family. (My mother passed away at Thanksgiving, 2007.) My mother was Georgia May Rochelle, daughter of William Arch Rochelle. I will gather up our family's information if you would like to add it to the website.

Birth & Death? I don' know his birthdate but i only have the data that Doris has supplied us.
Comments:
Since Ann Rochelle was a direct descendant, the 7th in line, then my great grandfatfather would be 8th, his daughter, my grandmother becomes 9th, my mother then moves in to the 10th spot, and I then however diluted since 1634 move into 11th generation.
Gee, Sloan, we Americans are truly the human genetic melting pots of the world. From my last name you can already tell that I have Irish blood but to complicate matter we throw in Polish, then stir two doses of English,
then is Du Rochelle was not the French Huegonot I am a Duren as well. Grt. Grandfather Duren took as abride a family ecaping the Prussian wars only to oget caught up fighting for the CSA in S.C. That's where all my Duren's fought.
Enough for now,
Happy New Year!

Earliest known ancestor? re: Martha Rochelle, b c1810
Birth & Death? marr: 1829 Granville NC
Comments:
Hi; I am a 33 yr genealogist of the PASCHAL family of NJ/NC.
In 1829, Richard T Paschal marr Martha Rochelle in Granville Co, NC. She died c1831 possibly in childbirth. John W Paschal, b c1831, appears in Lawr, Hick Co's TN later and there marr Nancy Rochelle. Your site has info on this line. My thoughts are that John may have been raised in the Rochelle fam that moved here from NC and be the son of Richard. Do you know of the Martha Rochelle above, likely b c1810? The 1830/1840 census for Richard does not show a young son; he remarried soon after Martha died. This is just a guess. my site same as yours except suffix ~sandydog Thanks

Dear Sloan,

A member of my US Daughters of 1812 chapter is submitting her application on descent from James Rochelle of Fairfield Co. Eligibility includes civil and military service from end of the Revolution thru the War of 1812 (1814). She descends from James's son James and on down to the Moores etc. who settled in Texarkana, TX.

So I thought I'm submitting a supplemental on James Sr. (I'm chapter registrar). One of the questions is where the ancestor is buried. Of course, if you don't know, you can't put anything but unknown. I remember you found and recorded the Rochelle Graveyard in Fairfield Co. before the destruction and removal of stones took place. Is there an on-line or in-print source that I may copy and submit as proof? I'm not even sure James's grave was one of the ones you found "on a lonely hill," but I know the Rochelle graves are not in the published Fairfield Co. Cemeteries books. So your account of recording them would be great to have.

The applicant I mentioned included a lot of the Rochelle excerpts from the DELMAR PAPERS. From on-line sources I notice Delmar heavily researched the Daniel Boone family as well, and since that's not in the Rochelle excerpts I must assume he could not identify the Boone relationship of John Rochelle's wife Elizabeth Boone -- which I know of no sources for. Do you?

Thanks, and great job on your website!
Doris in Texas

Comments:
There is a family history which states James Marr, Fairfield, S.C. married a Rochelle. A James Marr is listed as being one of the creditors of Capt. James Rochelle who died in 1802. This James Marr (and Rochelle) are said to have had three daughters. One married a Judge Rutlen; one married a John Young, and the other married a General Blair. This, however, does not seem to be true if it was Charlotte Rochelle who married General Blair.

Earliest known ancestor? Harmon Daniel King
Birth & Death? 1805? - 1905
Comments:
Reference the letter to you from John Pankow. I was born in 1930 and am a son of Howard Hartwell King (1910 - 1993) Grandson of Joseph Stough King (1860 - 1937) and Margaret Hartwell, gGrandson of Harmon Daniel King (1805? - 1905) and Mary V. Starnes.These are definite in the lineage. Family tradition states also that my ggGrandfather was named Harmon Daniel King and he came to South Carolina with Lafayette's army in the Revolutionary War and married Betsy Flye who's mother was from France and named Betsy Rochelle.

My earliest known ancester was William Hartwell who came to Concord, Mass. in 1636 and died in 1689. Then Samuel Hartwell (1646 - 1725), william Hartwell (1671 - 1742), Daniel Hartwell (1709 - 1795), william Hartwell (1743 - ?), Jesse Hartwell (1771 - 1860), Jesse Hartwell (1795 - 1859) who came to Charleston,SC circa 1822 and married Margaret Foreman Brodie (1806 - 1880)in 1824, Edward Newhall Hartwell (1840 - 1926)was a CSA veteran who married Mary Eliza Rhodes (1840 - 1893) in 1859. Their daughter Margaret Helen Hartwell (1873 - 1967) is my Grandmother, wife of Joseph Stough King. I have information on these people back through gGrandfather Harmon Daniel King and some family tradition on the King Fly/Flye Rochelle connections.

Actually Sarah Ann had married one of my Powers cousins, Kinchen Fennell Powers.

Earliest known ancestor? Mrs. Mary Hart Rochelle LAND
Birth & Death? ca. War of 1812
Comments:
Copied data from the book, "Old Homes in Surry & Sussex" by Mzry A. Stphenson, The Dietz Press, Richmond, VA, publishers, 1942 on pages 65-70 there is information about 2 homes in the Land families. The house of BLOOMFIELD was owned by my direct ancestor, Edward Champion Land and his wife, Frances Rebecca Sara Peebles Land, which I was lucky to see and collect a handmade house brick in 2001. The house on "Montrose" was onced owned by Capt. Nathaniel Drew Land[1793-1840] and his wife, Mary H. Rochelle Land. I have been researching my maternal Land-LeGrand family for over 30 years and have enjoyed collecting in-laws and out-laws to include in my booklet, so I am curious about the possibility of a Rochelle spouse. Do you or any of your Rochelle contacts have any data, dates, sources, siblings, parents or "blacksheep' kin of this spouse of NATHANIEL LAND=Mary H. Rochelle? I do have a Nathaniel Land marrying a Mary Hart written into an unproven family record. Thank you in advance for any clues! Mary LeGrand Parmer, granddaughter of William R. Land & Mary Gregory LeGrand Land,deceased, of Hamlet, NC. mrsleg@aol.com

What a wonderful website! There are at least 10 members of my Rachael/Rachel family buried at Chapel Hill UMC in Davidson County NC. My ggggrandfather came to North Carolina with his young family around 1830. We know nothing about any of the rest of his family. If you know of any connection I would be thrilled! We have no more male members of our family left. I don't want to loose a name I have always been so proud of. It would be wonderful if there could be a North Carolina addition to your information.

I know were the Rochelle Graveyard is at Dutchman's Creek,

I have not seen it in about 15-20 years, but am sure it is still there as it was protected by iron posts and a wire fence. The grave yard is small with the graves of Col. Rochelle, his wife and a few childer, The tombstones were legible. It is located near the Rochelle Homeplace. Timbering in the 70's has erased sign of the home place, but the Graveyard wasn't harmed. Currently the graveyard is on property leased by a hunt club. My families property line is within 50 yards of the site.

I'm sending this, because I was suprised to read in your article that the grave near Dutchman'r creek had not been found.

Comments:
Samuel was born in SC in 1850 census and in NC in the 1860 & 1870 census. He's buried in Nelson Cem in Tarrant Co.TX with his son,(my gr-grdfather, Samuel Robert)and his family. (Have pictures) My first record of Samuel is in Coweta Co. GA in 1840. He married Mary Jane Whitlock there in 1839. Haven't connected him to Bryant but have done some research on Bryant when I first thought he might be Samuel Robert's father (1st mistake).
Can we safely assume that my Rachels comes from your spelling of Rochelle?

Per Sloan's EM on 2/28/02 I have the census records for Miles and Samuel in 1830-40-50. Thanks for that. Shirley

Earliest known ancestor? Vernon T Rochelle
Birth & Death? unknown
Comments:
I was married to the late Charles Dixon Rochelle. Our son's name is Elijah Rochelle. I have been trying to locate Charles's brother Dan Rochelle in North Carolina but to no avail - I don't even know if he is still living. Charles's parents are long gone and we don't know much about the family. I would like to find out about my son's family. Charles dad's name was Vernon who would be Elijah's grandfather. Charles would have been 56 years old this year. Vernon lived in the Greensboro North Carolina area but passed away when Charles was very young - so Vernon would have died 50-56 years ago. We think he was quite wealthy and owned a furniture factory that eventually was absorbed by or became a part of Burlington Mills. Charles just recently passed away, he never talked or had any contact with his family in North Carolina. He was sent to Culver Military Academy as a youngster and finished growing up and college in Indiana. I am only just starting this search and someone emailed me about the padgett cemetery site. My name is Anna Rochelle and I am the publisher and editor of the Journal of the Times, a 150-year-old newspaper located in Indiana. Any information you could give me would be much appreciated.

Birth & Death? born 1835 MS
Comments:
Rebecca A. Rochelle was my great grandmother. She married William Hardy Hill in Neshoba Co. MS. In 1850 her monther Nancy Rochelle 54 was living next door to William, Rebecca and William's mother. In 1860 Rebecca and William had cild Nancy living with them and another sister of Rebecca had one of the sons living with them. I would apreciate any help. The only Rochelle living in MS in 1840 was Etherington Rochelle.As all of Nancy's children were born in MS could this not be the father.The youngest child was 5 in 1850 so the father must have died sometime between 1845 and 1850. I have never had any real information on the Rochelles other than what I knew from my family. Thanks in advance for any help.

Sarah was married to James Whitaker Ross. He was in my Whitaker line. Which Doris has included in her beautiful site. My Grandfather was William Whitaker, son of Hamlin Valentine Whitaker. Hamlin's father William, and mother Mary Jane Wyatt settled Sarasota Florida. Their land has been cared for by the ladies of the DAR, so there is a wonderful site about them on the internet. My son looked just like Hamlin at the same age. There is a picture of the Whitaker family on the site. My mother was Flora Alberta Whitaker, daughter of William Whitaker, son who tradition has it, got a young lady in trouble in Fla., and he joined Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders as a Mule Skinner, when the war was over, he was discharged in San Francisco lived in the Richmond, Calif most of his adult life and married Alberta Rousseau, who died soon after my Aunt Frances was born, he married Edith and they had a daughter Gertrude, who was a nurse in WW II. She also died early in life.
I was born Barbara Louise Chapman. Dec. 30, 1933 in Richmond, California. Daughter of Harold Beeman Chapman, Sr., and Flora Alberta Whitaker.

I am in contact with one Clarence Roachelle, who may be a part of your line. as you may know, names were often mispelled by clerks who did not speak the language of the speaker. This may not have been as prevalent in the southern areas where immigrants were mostly english, but was a real problem with german and other eurpean s coming to Philadelphia and other places north.

Elizabeth Janes Rochelle, daughter of Charles Moores Rochelle and Elizabeth Janes, was my grandmother, she married my Grandfather John Sidney Crenshaw and had 7 children, James, Charles Garland (my father) Bessie, Mary and Cora the youngest. She had one stillborn baby and died in childbirth with another. Her daughter Bessie (my Aunt) died in childbirth exactly one year after mother's death. Most of these Crenshaw's are buried in State Line Cemetery in Texarkana.

I am trying to connecto the the Huguenot line of Rochelles so that I may join that organization. I think the line is through the Anderson Rochelle/Nancy Harrison link. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Earliest known ancestor? GEORGE DE ROCHELLE
Birth & Death? ?
Comments:
Based on an old family history for Pemberton by Eli Jay:
"We do find this name in the early records of St. John's Parish in Virginia when on August 9, 1679 John Pemberton, son of James was baptized and on August 28 of the same year, William and James Pemberton, sons of James and his wife Frances DeRochelle Pemberton dau of George Xavier DeRochelle. From the epitaph of Frances, we know she was born in 1677 and presume John was born about the same year, or a few years previously, and for some reason must not have been baptized at two or three weeks of age as was the custom, or his wife may have been the elder. John died prior to 1702 and left a son George for whom Capt. Richard Littlepage purchased land from the estate of one Samuel Osteen (Huston). Mr. Littlepage again acted for him in 1704, denoting he was still a minor. Frances DeRochelle Pemberton about this time married Capt. Richard Littlepage and became the mother of several children by him. The Littlepage family had their own burial ground but it was later moved to St. Peters Parish, (George and Martha Washington were married in this Parish church) and here her epitath states she died 21st day of February, 1732 in the 55th year of her age."
We are putting together a Pemberton family page at www.gbso.net/buc and would appreciate any information you might have that might help us prove or disprove the above.
Thanks

This is a great website. I am so glad several people are tracing the Rochell, Rachels, Rachell, Rachels and Rachel lines. There seems to frequent uses of the same names. This makes the hunt a bit more difficult. There also variances within ones own family. The recorders of census records may have had difficulty spelling names. It seems that ours was spelled differently during each census record

Comments:
Sloan, thanks for your suggestion tht I visit your site. Have been researching for about a year and am bogged down in GA relatives--too many Williams, Georges, Mileses, Burrells, Jameses, Elizabeths, Charitys, Zadocks, Nancys, etc.--not in any particular order. I need a new approach. Think I may have found one here. Perhaps the only way I can go before George went to GA is to look at the entire extended family. Surely we're kin somewhere along the way!

Sloan, your revised Home Page looks great, and yes, all the Links work. You're doing a wonderful job. I like all the "verses" on the tombstones in cemetery. I think the pictures are good, just maybe a little larger for these aging eyes.
On the wills and date they were recorded -- it's probably because the real estate stayed in the family until 1845 and then they needed to sell it or have a legal means of getting it in a new owner's name.
I'm impressed that you got a Guestbook to work; I never could on mine. Also, I have difficulty getting the tab stops to hold on my Descendants pages; they look right and then when you go back to the page, the indents have disappeared. Any suggestions?

Earliest known ancestor? Henderson Rochelle
Birth & Death? 1812-1868
Comments:
Doris, you have done a great job! THANKS. I have some Rochelle stuff but think I have shared everything with John and Sloan except family photos etc. I assume that John is doing the Henderson section. Can you document the 12 children of William and his two wives? I have the quick claim deed and that is about all that I have to connect my Henderson with William and Polly Ray. (Maybe 1850 Census)

#46 Henderson B was not childless. He and Frances Robertson had 6 children according to the 1850 Census 0f Lawrence County, TN According to the IGI Henderson married secondly to a Smithson. If you want I can send details. I descend from daughter Mary Frances Rochelle who married (1)Ulysses Churchwell and(2) a Voorhies. Thank you for all of your hard work. I could not figure out all of those early Rochelle Men. Let me know if I can help. Jean

I have been doing extensive research for a number of years on the Rochelle families located primarily in New Jersey and Ohio.

I have never found a connection to the Rochelles from Virginia or S. Carolina. Have you ever come across one. I have traced my Rochelle line back to the NJ/NY area in the mid 1700's.

Thank you

Lee Rochelle
