 +John Terrill Jr. first married Eliza [[graves_family|Graves]] of Boone County March 30, [[1823|1823]],​ who died after only six months of marriage. ​ John later married Nancy Walton, of Bracken County, in [[1825|1825]]. The Terrill family was closely linked to the [[walton_family|Walton]] family, as two of John's brothers married Nancy'​s sisters. ​ John's son, George married Amanda Walton of Mason County. ​    
 +John and Nancy owned a large farm in [[Petersburg|Petersburg]],​ and had the following children: ​
 +Elizabeth Rebecca Terrill, b. [[1826|1826]],​ [[george_w_terrill|George Washington Terrill]], b. [[1828|1828]],​ [[william_h_terrill|William H. Terrill]], b. [[1829|1829]],​ Parke W. Terrill, b. [[1832|1832]],​ [[robert_q_terrill|Robert Quimby Terrill]], b. [[1834|1834]],​ James E. Terrill, b. [[1837|1837]],​ John M. Terrill, b. [[1838|1838]],​ [[joshua_terrill|Joshua Cornelius Terrill]], b. [[1840|1840]],​ and [[simeon_f_terrill|Simeon F. Terrill]], b. [[1843|1843]].
 +Four of the eight sons died at fairly young ages.  Parke died in Howard, MO. in 1851,at the age of 19; he is buried with his Uncle Joshua'​s family. James died from consumption in 1860, at the age of 23. John died from drowning in the [[ohio_river|Ohio River]] at the age of 12.  Simeon died during the Civil War, in 1863, at the age of 20. Robert died in a shooting incident on the Lawrenceburg Ferry in 1867. 
 +Of the five sons of John and Nancy Terrill who fought in the [[civil_war|Civil War]], two fought for the Union (William and Robert) and three fought for the Confederacy (George, Joshua and Simeon). ​ The extended Terrill family in Boone County and Howard County, MO appears to have sympathized with the Confederate cause. ​ Far fewer Terrill men are listed in service to the Union.  ​
 +Most of the Terrills were buried in Petersburg.
