Looking for info on John D. Russell b. June 30, 1815 in Franklin, Franklin County, Vermont d. Nov. 23, 1892, buried in Franklin, Franklin County, Vermont. Married Mary Jane Flynton. They had 1 child that I know of, but can't find her, Mary Jane Russell, b. Jan. 20. 1841 in Fletcher, Franklin County, Vermont. MJR married Francis Kennett. They are my great, great, great grandparents. Wondering if John & Mary Jane (Flynton) Russell had any other children. Thank You, Cheryl

Cheryl, I found the following possiblities

Elvira A Russell of Franklin, VT, age 22 (b. abt 1856 Franklin VT), dau of John D & Mary Russell, married Alonzo D Seward on June 4, 1878 at Highgate, VT

Myra A Russell of Franklin, VT, age 18 (b. abt 1856 Franklin VT), dau of John D & Mary Russell, married John H Pierce on Sept 23, 1874 at Franklin

Zachery Russell, farmer of Franklin, VT age 22 (b. abt 1849 Franklin VT), son of J. D. & Mary Russell, married Orissa Safford on Aug 2 1871 at Franklin

Not sure if this is from the same family
Lorenzo Russell, b. 8/2/1858 at Sheldon to John Russell (b. Canada) & Mary (b. Highgate)

I found other children born later to a John Russell & Mary Constantine. It is possible that this John was also a son.

Zachery Russell (1849-1880) mentioned previously was the son of John D Russell and Mary Yaw so is not part of the famly you seek.

Thank you Wanda !!! I believe that the John Russell who married Mary Constantine was John Zachery Russell, son of Zachery. I'm still seeking info on Mary Jane Flynton, wife of John D. Russell, mother of Mary Jane (Russell) Kennett. Mary Jane Russell married my great great grandfather, their daughter Cora (Kennett) Fountain and her husband Francis Fountain are my great grandparents. Thank you so much.

Mary Constantine was the daughter of "Suppliant" Cyprien Constantineau and Henriette Patenaude ( my 2gr grandparents). According to their marriage record he was John Racine and was the son of Adoph Racine and Josephine Masse. They are Russell in the censuses and on their headstones in Mt Calvary Cemetery in St. Albans and Racine in the Holy Angels Marriage Repertoire. I have been unable to find anything on his parents.
