Your posting is really interesting. I find various lists of Electa and Frederick's children. I think that they can be reconciled, but I have not gone through the work of doing it. Your list looks authoritative. Norman and Russell are new names to me.

About son Frederick being buried in Ashley Union Cemetery.... I have a number of Russell relatives buried there. I am guessing the Electa Russell Wood (b. 1785) was possibly related to Richard Russell, maybe a sister. This is pure speculation.

During the 1830 census of Oxford in Delaware County, Ohio, Electa was listed below Ebenezer Wood, between 60 and 70. Above her name on the same page were listed Solomon Soper, husband of her daughter Phobe, and above Soper's name Samuel and Saul Russell, Samuel being 60 to 70 and Saul of an age to be his son. I cannot connect my Russells with Samuel or Saul, but they undoubtedly connect with Electa.

Do you have any idea of Electa's ancestry? Her siblings?
