Hi Missy, WE have family ties! Also Chris on this Payson site may have information to share with you. My gg grandfather Russell was brother to your Samuel of 1814. I also have a Minn. contact that could shed so light on your ancestors. I didnt realize that Samuels' (1814) father was so old. and I have his mothers name as Cloe or Chloe. Will e mail you what I have. Also I have Pettis info. Regards, June at .
