The Gambrell family and Douthit family got involved early in America, and there are several marriages back and forth. The Gambrells are an ambitious and active family that has continued to search out their roots and uncovered an amazing family of which they have had reason to be proud historically and today. If you are a Gambrell family member, help us make this family tree even more complete with better and more information!

    We finally got back to James O. Bryson, “Register Report for John Newton Gambrell,” to add some more info. He has asked we not published everything, so we just try to get the basics from his file. Hopefully he will get his work published, because it is a very well done research project. We continued from 49 in the 4th generation section and finished it up on page 70. Before we could move forward, we had to jump back to page 20 to 35 where we have already worked. Then we moved to pg 70 and got to 73.
