John Russell – 15 Dec 1743 to 28 Nov 1822
Age about 79 years
John Russell is my 3rd great grandaunt’s husband’s father. Not a blood relation or real close relative. However, he just happens to be the person I was looking at today in my family tree. He is buried, along with his wife, Patience, in Russell Cemetery, Aid, Lawrence County, Ohio.
He married first Susannah Day, unknown date, and they had 6 known children: James, John, Lawrence, Rachel, Esther and Elizabeth. Next he married Patience Piles (15 Feb 1773 to 19 Sep 1852) – to them were born Jemima, Anne, Jane, Armilda, Thomas, Manoah Bostic, Samuel, Jeremiah, Sanders, Francis and James.
It is their son, Thomas, who married my 3rd great grandaunt, Lucinda Boggs.
I have a LOT of ancestors from the Lawrence County, Ohio area. Many of their descendants are members of The Lawrence Register Facebook page. We communicate and share information all the time. They are a wonderful group of people.
TIP: I encourage every researcher to take advantage of the groups on Facebook for the areas where your ancestors lived. Some are more active than others. But, you will find connections and very helpful people in most of them. At least that has been my experience.
Now, time to explore a little more about this Russell family and their descendants.
