Archelaus Russell #36605963 __________ Ellis Russell and Jane Catherine Wolcott married in Windsor, CT, perhaps moved to Hadley MA, and were then in Springfield, MA by 1773. He purchased land to the south of Pecousic Brook which runs from East Longmeadow, passes near the present Franconia Golf Course in Longmeadow, MA, and then into Springfield's Forest Park. This land was initially in Springfield but became part of Longmeadow in 1783. By 1801 he lived on Long Hill in Springfield, but his whereabouts have not been determined after 1804 (age 74). "There is no further record of Ellis and Jane in MA. They may have accompanied son Oliver, when he moved circa 1804 to Phelps, Ontario, NY." He seems to have been a landowner but not necessarily a farmer. __________ Primary source: "Descendants of William Russell of Salem, Mass, 1674," [DWR], by George Ely Russell, pub. 1989, 200 copies printed; pgs. 37-40.
