very distantly...I am decended from Michael Russell 1765-1835. Through Rueben Russell and Sarah Eiklor. I worked on the Russell Line for years in an effort to connect my Great Grandfather Hiram to this line. Until i began my work there was no info on many of the Russells you now find on my tree. I had to follow them all over the USA and back to complete the connection as I worked to find a living desendant that might help me in my search. Thus the branch containing your Grandfather Lynn. I figured as I hunted things down it was only right to add the info for anyone who came looking for thier roots....hope that helps.
