Russel is my father and we are having a difficult time trying to find his father. We don't think Titus, Charles, is his father, as he married Minnie in 1905 in South Dakota. Dad was born in 1901 in Iowa, to Minnie Mae Lawrence (her Maiden name). She was 13 in 1901, we think she married a man by the name, Rascelus P Hamilton, he was a black man according to the Iowa census. He was a barber in Dow City where Minnie's family lived. If all this is correct, Dad's birth name was Rusal R Hamilton.

We grew up believing Dad's father was Albert Allen, it was within the past few months we found all this out. Albert's family­ told us that they all knew he was adopted. But they aren't sure if the adoption was legal or just a changing of the last name. Minnie was married at least 3 times or more. The Hamilton marriage was in 1901, the Titus marriage was in 1905, the Allen marriage was 1910, then in 1930's she married John Rhinesmith, who we knew. Trying to find divorces for the first two. I know Titus continued to live in South Dakota, Hamilton total blank.

Sorry to overload with info, but when I saw Dad's picture, whew! So your wife is which of my brother and sisters children?
