My great, great grandfather, John Wesley Russell, joined the military in 1857 from North Carolina and the troops went west to Fort Alcatraces, where he finally settled in WA and OR. Mary Russell I finally believe was his mother with other siblings who stayed in the area for many decades. Just trying to find out about her surname, which may be Boon, but I have my doubts. Her children are Catharine, Stephen E, Theodore, Carolina, James K P, Archabald. Any help would be appreciated.
