Researching Russel L. AUSTIN b abt 1867, Lualla (Austin?) Arnold, and Mary (Minnie) Austin Randolph b abt 1862. Children of Jedidiah and Mary BURGESS Austin. Jedidiah and Mary are buried in Sunnyside, Washington; I have verified with cemetery records, etc.
I have an obituary for Victor Freemont Austin from Walla Walla listing the above as brothers and sisters living in the Tri-City area.
Also looking for Celia NEWELL Updike and a Blanche NEWELL Ensley(sp?). Sisters of Ida Newell Austin married to brother of Russell. It is possible that Celia married Ensley and that Blanche married Updike. Not positive of which. Hitting a brick wall on their parents; Orrin W Newell and Martha Lord. Martha Lord Newell might have a sister named Nancy who married Amos Greene with a daughter Mary C Greene who married ?Wilcox. Martha Lord's parents Joseph Lord Jr and Ruth Bosworth. Have read a diary from 1925, that states Ida visited sister Celia in Kennewick. Thanks for any help you might be able to give me, Val Barney
