My Grandfather was Vernon Russell, of Russell County Ky,
His father was Ross Russell, I believe of Wayne County.
My Uncle Ross and my Cousin Ross Jr. still reside in the County. I am looking for family members still in the county to jointly pursue geneological research. My maternal Grandfather was Everett Lee McGowan also of Russell County Ky. I have several McGowan family members still in Russell County. I am also looking for a partner in geneological research. I have some interesting things to share about my Grandmothers father James Millard Kinnett a Civil War Veteran. I have traced his maternal side to Ireland.
Contact me! I am a UCLA Graduate in Economics and I reside in Laguna Hills California. I was last in the county way back in 1974.
