Dear Brenda: My name is Todd Russell, a decendant of an "Aaron Russell" who was born about 1770. Is it a coincidence? or may it be that the Aaron J. Russell, you mentioned, born in 1843 is a descendent (possibly a nephew or cousin of the one born in 1770? I am sending you the information I obtained from my uncle, James Russell before he died. He enjoyed tracing our family tree. My Father was Billy Russell and Aaron Russell would be my Great, Great, Great, Great grandfather! Maybe this will provide a little piece to the puzzle. Are you searching your family tree?
