Saw your messag on the board and caught my eye. We may not have much in the line but thought I'd see what this brings. My Great GreatGrandpa was David Russell born 1815 in
Hawkins Co Tenn. ist Wife was a Barbary E.
(No last name known)2nd wife was named Mary
(No other info)I have all the childrens names from both mariages and dates and places of birth.Most were in Ark and Tenn.
He was killed in the battle of Helena Ark 4 July 1863. I have his Civil War records.
His daughter Mary Jane Russell married Edward A. Roach. These are my Great Grandparents.The Russell side of my family
is so scattered they are hard to find, but do have some that are still living but haven't made contact with them yet.The names
you gave don't match up with what I have but
then I don't have much on the recent generations other that names and birth dates.
Be interested to know what you have and would be glad to share any info I have if we match up. there are 12 children involved with the Russell name. I know of only two that made it to New Mexico but had other married names Roach and Killian. Regards Sidney Harrison
