M, #44510, b. 1801, d. after 1870
     There is some question about the race of the John and Fanny and their children. The 1870 and 1910 census identifies them as white, the 1910 census as black and the 1850 census as mulatto. (No race is given in the 1860 census)
John is listed in the 1830 and 1840 census with no white males or females.
In the 1830 census he has free colored residing with him:
Female under 10 (Julia was 5)
Female under 24 (Fanny was 27)
2 Males under 10 ( Henry was 4 and James was 1)
Male under 36 (?)
In the 1840 Census he has free colored residing with him:

4 Males under 10 (Wiley was 9 and James was 11)
1 Male 10-24 (Henry was 14)
1 Male 36-55 (?)
A newspaper article at the time James was arrested stated Henry was arrested in Tennessee and suspected to be a free negro.
When a reward was offered for the arrest of James, he was described as having very dark skin and kinky hair parted in the middle and resembling a negro.
Julia was listed as colored on her death ceertificate.
Adle was listed as whiye on her death certificte.

In the 1840 Census he has free colored residing with him:
Female under 10 (Minerva Jane was 8)
Female 10-24 (Julia was 15)
Female 26-55 (Fanny was 37
4 Males under 10 (Wiley was 9 and James was 11)
1 Male 10-24 (Henry was 14)
1 Male 36-55 (?)
A newspaper article at the time James was arrested stated Henry was arrested in Tennessee and suspected to be a free negro.
When a reward was offered for the arrest of James, he was described as having very dark skin and kinky hair parted in the middle and resembling a negro.
Julia was listed as colored on her death ceertificate.
Adle was listed as whiye on her death certificte.
The most logical conclusion is that Fanny was a free negro and the children were of mixed race. Henry Y. Revell, son of John Revell and Frances R. "Fanny" (?), was born in 1826 in Sampson County, North Carolina.1
He lived with his parents, Frances and John, in 1850 at Tennessee Valley in Macon County, North Carolina.2
Henry married Martha A. Childres on April 25, 1855 at Crawford County, Georgia.1
A newspaper article in The Weekly Telegraph Newspaper, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia, dated April 12, 1859 reported We understand that James Revel, who was convicted of murder and sentenced to be hung at the March term of Crawford Court, but escaped from Clinton Jail last year, was recently arrested in Tennessee and was carried to Milledgville yesterday, in charge of Mr. Hancock, the Sheriff of Crawford County.
It appears that the prisoner's brother, Henry Revel was taken up (arrested) in Tennessee on suspicion of being a free negro, and not being able to give a satisfactory account of himself, was searched, and letters and papers were found in his possession which gave the information as to the character and whereabouts of his brother James, and a party immediately started in pursuit and succeeded in making the capture.
Revel will remain in jail until the next term of Crawford Court, when he will be re-sentenced.1 His wife, Martha, died in 1875.1
Henry married Sarah Ann Jackson on August 29, 1875 at Blount County, Tennessee.1
Henry died in 1885.1
