I am posting these records which were passed onto me by my grandfather, Russell Conwell Merrell (b. 1896, Connersville, IN and came to Los Angeles,CA after WWI). Hopefully, they will look familiar to some one. I have many questions. Please feel free to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you, thanks.
