Hi ,

I am a descendent of William RUSSELL and Minta FOWLER who's daughter Margaret married John GIST.

I am confused after looking at the posting of info about Maj William RUSSELL .I lived in Franklin Co. , Tn. while doing research from 2002-2005 and met and befriended Sue(WAGGONER,RUSSELL,KELLY ....) at the Library genealogy section. She and I are related 6 ways. I have not talked to her in a few years and have lost all contact now. I hope all is well there as I know they were getting up in years.

I am trying to bridge this gap above William RUSSELL does he connect to Maj William RUSSELL. I also wanted to know what you have on Col. William RUSSELL connection to the Franklin Co.'s RUSSELL'S.

I thought that it was like this William RUSSELL c.1679 sent to buy land in Va. by king,,two of his sons are Col. William RUSSELL 1717 sent with Daniel BOONE and settler of Russell Co., KY., George RUSSELL c.1720 died at the Alamo with Davy CROCKETT who was brother in law to Willam BEAN through Lydia RUSSELL,daughter of William RUSSELL and Mary HENLEY.

It is listed that Maj William had a son George that was friends with Davy CROCKETT not a father .


Is the George RUSSELL that was Davy CROCKETT's friend that died with him Major William RUSSELL'S son or father?????

What DNA studies have been done regarding these men???


Thanks,
Sheri Savory
