No. 1A John Quincy
Harrell (1852-1936)

John Quincy was the first child of Joseph Colley and Nancy Holloway Harrell. He was born on October 18, 1852, in Lowndes (Brooks) County, Georgia. When John was about 7 years old, he moved to Florida with his parents and grandparents, James and Judith Holloway and their family.

At the time, there were three children in the Harrell family, James Madison, Mary Jane and John. They settled in the Pine Hill (Brooker) area in New River County Bradford.

John married Georgian Amanda Johnson about 1853. She was the daughter of Solomon David and Martha Cason Johnson. She was born on March 22, 1857, in Brooks County, Georgia. Solomon sold his property in Brooks County to his brother, Wilson, on October 2, 1857, and moved to Worthington Springs, Union County, Florida. Her mother died when she was about 3 years old. She then lived with her grandparents, the James Cason family in Alachua County.

John continued in the family tradition of farming. John died on July 11, 1936. Amanda died on March 20, 1943. They are buried at New Hope Cemetery near LaCrosse, Alachua County, Florida.

After John died, Amanda's half-sister, Josephine Johnson Young, was located in Hillsborough County. Amanda spent quite a lot of time with her.
