(China, Sally & David Harwell were the children of Sally Harwell, a free woman of color in the Warren Co. records.  China Harwell married Ambrose Hawkins in 1823 Halifax County, where they raised their family. Ambrose & China's children were Susan, Frances, Lucy, Sally Eliza, Harriet, Hiram, Joseph J., William Hilliard, Tempy, and Zedock Hawkins.  Sally Harwell Jr. never married.  David Harwell married Nancy Mills in 1820, however, I haven't found him afterwards)
