THOMAS KENNERLY TERRELL (1869-1955)
Thomas Kennerly TERRELL, son of Dr. John Jay TERRELL and Susan WADE, was
born 10 July 1869 at Rock Castle, in Campbell County, Virginia. He was educated at
New London Academy and received his medical degree from the University of Virginia
in 1895. He was elected a member of the Medical Society of Virginia in 1901. He
practiced medicine with his father in Campbell County until 1908, when he moved to the
West to recuperate from failing health. During his professional career, Dr. TERRELL
worked in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and New Orleans.
Dr. Thomas K. TERRELL returned to Rock Castle in 1917 when his father was
unable to manage his own medical practice and conduct the business of the farm.
TERRELL gave up his medical practice and devoted his time to the management of the
farm and to the operation of the Rock Castle Dairy. When the dairy was sold in 1947, he
moved to Lynchburg where he died 4 June 1955. He was buried in Spring Hill Cemetery.
