Hello to all list members!
I'm a new member.
I connect to Jackson County thru my gg grandfather, Lewis Green.
He received land in 1831-location indicates the land is near Rash, Alabama.
Information has been very hard to find about Lewis and his family.
He was in Missouri by 1847 where/when my g grandfather, Marion was born.
There is no wife on the 1850 census with him.
I descend from the RUSSELLs with connections to the Russell Cave.
My g grandfather is John Melvin Russell b in NC, d in Arkansas.
His father was James Russell who married Sarah Cabe.
James's father was Mathew Russell, Jr.
And, then, of course, Matthew Sr.
