Re: JOHN MITCHELL-WILL-1780-AUGUSTA CO VA Posted by: Jerri Howard Date: December 13, 2001 at 11:34:46 In Reply to: Re: JOHN MITCHELL-WILL-1780-AUGUSTA CO VA by Veornica Russell of 12816

I do not know who the Andrew Russell, b abt.1740, d 1803, parents were. I know that John Mitchell mentioned Andrew Russell's family in his will in 1780. John Mitchell also was mentioned in some of their land transactions. It's possible that your Andrew Russell, b 1715 could be the father of Andrew Russell (1740-1803). What year did your Andrew Russell die. There is a mention of Andrew Russell being the son of "Widow Rusell" abt. 1760. The DAR records state that Andrew Russell's wife was Elizabeth Mitchell. But this is incorrect! I have documented proof that she was Elizabeth Armstrong, d/o Mathew Armstrong. John Mitchell's will and land transactions are in The "Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia by Lyman Chalkley". There are three volumes and it is on the internet. Look in the Russell Family GenForum at the queries about this family. Please let me know if you find a connection. I believe there were about three Andrew Russells in Augusta Co. at the same time.
