      If any of the following is familiar to anyone with Russell connections, I would appreciate your help. I live in Az., and have never been to Jackson Co. My g-g grandfather was named Thomas Russell. I found him in the 1860 census in Jackson Co. with wife, Martha Ottinger, and 4 children, Amanda,b.1853, Mary,b.1856, William,b.1858, and John. b.1860. He, along with the children dissappear after that, I have not been able to find any trace of them.However, Martha is in the 1870 census, living in the vicinity of several of her sisters along with a five year old child named Lucy. Then, in 1880 Martha is in Grayson Co., Tx., living with her sister and brother-in-law, John and Margaret Flowers. There is also Lucy and a 4 year old boy named John W. Russell. John W is my grandfather.He was born in Jackson Co. in 1875. He was orphaned at about 6 and was raised by family friends. He remembered nothing about his mother and didn't know he had siblings. Lucy also vanishes after the 1880 census, as far as I have been able to determine.
      I would appreciate any help or suggestions anyone might be able to give me. Thank you so much for your time.

      Sharon.... My Millicans from Jackson Co., AL are Benjamin and Rebecca Howell Millican (Millikan) from TN who settled in the Mud Creek area around 1838. It was their son Benjamin who married Sarah Russell from the Stevenson area. They along with Benj and Rebeccas's son Francis Marion Millican (my Line) and several other siblings moved to MO and then into Texas. All of this Millican family was gone from AL by around 1868 just after Rebecca died.If any of this sounds familiar to you please contact me. I will be happy to share information.pat--- In jacksongenealogy@yahoogroups.com, Sharon Henson <rhodasharon1944@...> wrote:>> What Millican family are you researching?
