Russell Family Hi Janelle - Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you still need some questions answered. If you are on Ancestry you can go to my site, Russell Family Tree (owned by Jesse Russell) and glean quite a bit of information and will find that after much research John Russell b. 1772 is indeed John Russell Crafton and DNA has confirmed that we are Craftons with a female link to Russell. Interesting and a bit of a shock to the family that has gone by Russell for over 200 years. :) Jesse Russell

Russell Family Genealogy My Russell family is rich in United States military history. Major William Russell was my 5th great-grandfather and was a veteran of the war of 1812 and possibly the Revolutionary War. Captain William Russell Jr, Major Russell's son, and several of their kin served under William Sr. My great-father, Guy Merritt Russell, most likely served in World War I. My grand-father, Guy Marvin Russell, and several of his kin served in World War II. Guy served on the escort carrier USS Petrof Bay. I have a Russell cousin who just retired from the US Army as a Lt Colonel.
