African American Nowells
I have been searching for my Nowell family for some time now. They were from Columbia South Carolina(1850-1920). My gggrandfather Nowell was a General with the Capital City Guards and he was the grand lecturer of the Knights of Pythias for 14 years. Two of his sons moved to New York City. They were Spriggs Nowell and Leon Nowell. Spriggs lived there from 1910 until his death around 1936. I have never come across any other Nowells in my life African American or otherwise. Does anyone know anything about African American Nowells from Columbia SC?
