Elder James McKeel
this is quite wonderful work tying these guys together! But there is a duplicate entry for James it was jut added.

Find A Grave Memorial# 146872348

Maybe you could incorporate that information into your entry since it predates, and get them to remove theirs?

George Russell and Lydia Russell first are not brother and sister. William Russell and Mary Henley only had two sons William and Henry and Daughter Catherine Russell.

The birth date for Lydia Russell used by every Russell Researchers makes her the daughter of
George Russell and Sarah Smith Armistead of Richmond, VA Lydia Russell was in her father will as Lydia Beech and her brother's Will as Lydia Bush.

George Russell per his birth date that every Russell researcher uses is 30 Nov 1720.
This George Russell was the son of George Russell and Mary MNU OF Richmond Va.

George Russell married three times 1st Elizabeth Bengey and had Joseph Russell who married Sarah Smith Armistead widow of Frances Armistead.
PARENTS OF Lydia Russell

George married 2nd Rachel MNU
had Samuel Russell 1715

George married 3nd Mary MNU
HAD George Russell, Lucy Russell, and Barbary Russell
George Russell died Nov 1731 and listed his children in he Will.

So guessing George and Lydia were half cousins

Sarah Smith Armistead Russell had son John Armistead and Elizabeth Armistead who married a William Russell who I have no research on. John Married Hannah Harrison and were in Cumberland Va

RE: Henry Wise
Is is possible that Mary Jane Wise 1838-1930 was his second wife? She is in the same cemetery as Henry.
I have no confirmed resource that Wayne is Henry's father, but everything fits in place.
I am off of Ancestory.Com for a break to do other things. Will be back on in a few more months. If this is true. Henry had one more brother and two sisters. William E., Nancy C., Martha A. Wise.
Wayne's Father is John Patterson Wise Find A Grave# 37640368.
John Patterson had 5 sons and 5 daughters.
Some of them moved on to Mississippi.
Maybe you can help me out on this one John and Henry are also in my Tree line.

My Russell family
I'm trying to get more information on my Russell family. Many people say that my direct ancestor is George and Lydia Russell's brother, John Russell. Do you happen to know the other children of William Russell and Martha (Mary) Henley? Any information would be helpful. You can contact me at: Thanks. Troy Russell Lamar

I would like to thank you for your photos of family tombstones. I have copied one marker to to serve as placeholders for distant relative
William Horner in the Bent Creek Cemetery in Hamblin County, TN. If you prefer that I remove these photos I will do so.

RE: Trying to find records
If you could contact Martha that would be great. I just started researching again so I haven't contacted anyone. I hope to put together a family tree as far back as possible for my kids so they have a history of our family. On a plus I have all the way back to Mortamer on Boulware.
