He is my many Xs great grandfather on the Russell Lineage Charlotte Dixon, the daughter of Elizabeth & Samuel Dixon, married John Chastain Russell. Samuel was the son of John & Elizabeth Peyton Dixon. Elizabeth Peyton was the Daughter of Sir John Peyton Bart and Frances Cooke. Frances Cooke was the daughter of Frances Whiting & Mordecai Cooke. Mordecai came from his father, the Honorable Mordecai Cooke of Glouchester Co, VA & his wife, Frances Ironmonger. I've lost it at that point.
