Oliver married 2) Catherine (Grant) Chadwick, born in MA, in Arcadia Twp., Orleans, NY. After Oliver died, in 1841, at age ~46, Catherine moved to Eaton Co., MI and married 3) Henry L.

Living with them were Amanda Russell, age 15, and Jabez Russell, age 14. Living in the same dwelling, but in a separate David and Sally Saunders family, lived her daughter Abigail Russell, age 17, born in MI. Catherine claimed War of 1812 bounty land for the benefit of his minor orphan Amanda Russell, and was issued a warrant for 160 acres under the Act of 1855. [DWR, pg. 77]
[Note: this might imply that Oliver Russell moved to the area of Eaton Co., MI prior to his death, or that Catherine was pregnant when Oliver died and she moved to MI with some of her Russell children. Mary E. Warner, 2013.]
