john Russell brn abt 1758 Served in the British Army for abt 7 years, entered service about 1775 in 1782 he was in Capt Greenes Company, he was a private in the 31`st Regiment of Foot Soldiers.
On April,24th,1780 he married sarah Nanson in Quebec Canada,I am not sure how many children they had but they did have children. I do not know if sarah died or not, but by 1795 he was married to marie josephte Bergeron they had 7 children born in New Carlsile Bonaventure Quebec.
His surname shows up in many differnt spellings such as Restel,Restell,Rosel,Rousselle,Rousell,.
am looking for place he was born who were his parents and syblings. It is said but not proven that he was born somewhere in England.
As you can see in some of my other posts some of his grandchildren moved to the United States.
