Researching my G. Grandmother Ruth PINDER bn. 4/14/1851, died May 1, 1930 in Key West. Ruth was the daughter of JOSEPH PINDER bn. abt. 1832. Ruth was married in 1865 in Abaco to Joseph Henry Russell, Jr. bn. abt 1844 in Hopetown, Abaco. I need info on the Pinder lineage on Abaco. Would like to hear from any Pinders in the Bahamas or elsewhere who can contribute info on this line. Phyllis

Aunt Juliette lived with Hilary and family next to us in Key West for many years. She was a sweet lady and loved by everyone.
I have more lineage on the Russell that I will send you.
Hi , my name is Janet Nix and I am just beginning to
research my pinder and russell lines. I know that my gg
grandparents names were Joseph Russell and Ruth Pender and
that they were both born in the Bahamas and died in Key
West. I am wondering if they are one and the same. Their
daughter Julliette Knowles and her husband George are my
g grandparents. Julliette was born in 1865 and she had I
believe 9 children ,one of them being Myrtle who is my g
grandmother. It seems quite a coincidence, are they the
same people? If they are perhaps we can share info as it
comes along. Janet
Looking for Irene L. Russell
I am looking for relatives of Irene L. Lawson, born around 1909 on Cat Island Bahamas to James E. Russell and Emily (maiden name unknown).
My second cousin is Louise Smith (maiden name of Russell?) now living on Grand Bahamas Island.
I am in Atlanta, GA (USA) please anyone with any info on the above surnames please contact me.
Phyllis, Thank you so much for the information. I'm so glad I found you. Mrtlye's daughter Ruth Mary Sawyer Manning is my grandmother. Did you know her? I greatly apprieciate your sharing information with me. I look forward to any info you send my way. Thanks, Janet
Jan, yes I knew your Grandmother Ruth and her husband. Also, her brother Billy and the whole family. I have the Russell lineage for Myrtle's Grandparents Joseph H. Russell and his wife Ruth Pinder. Ruth's Pinder's father was Joseph Pinder but I do not have any info on the Pinder lineage beyond that. However. I will get the lineage past and present off to you. Phyllis
Does Louise Russell have a sister named Delores who lives in Nassau? Does the name Hildarena Dean ring a bell (or, something similar?) Those are cousins of my father.
I'm looking for my family. They havent kept good records and im searching for my roots. im 18 years old and i know that the pinders lived in the bahamas and then in key west. i would also like to add that i am black and that good records on black bahamians are hard to find so i was wondering if someone could help me out.
JOSEPH H. RUSSELL and SUSAN WEATHERFORD were my G.G.Grandparents.
JOSEPH'S parents were:
Father: THOMAS RUSSELL bn. 1786 at Harbour Island, Eleuretha, Bhs.
Mother: ELIZABETH ADAMS (Elizabeth was the daughter of JACOB ADAMS and WYANNIE MALONE.
It is my understanding that the earlier RUSSELLS left from Bristol, England and went to Bermuda. I do not know if they were at Cartagena or Jamaica. I was told recently by a family member that they left England with their own 3 mast schooner. However, I do not have documentation on that.
Most of the information I have on the RUSSELLs came from a friend and Mr. Harlee's book "Kinsfolks". Phyllis
