Oh Yes!! I am still working on this. You may be an answer to my prayers! I have never found anyone who knew who she was. Who is your friend? I am also a descedent from Cecelia Hough Hixson Russell and Thomas Russell. Her daughter Mary Virginia Russell is my Great Grandmother. I have absolutely not been able to find any Hough relatives.
I know she was married in Loudoun Co. VA to Noah Hixson and that he died in Green Co, OH. Thank you, Thank you for taking the time to contact me! Judith - firstname.lastname@example.org
