I am seeking information about Russells who left Nantucket and went to Washington County, New York, before or about 1790. They probably went to the town of Easton.I realize there were many Russells, and it seems to me that they scattered all over New England and later all over North America, so they are hard to research.
Were the Russells in the 1790 census of Nantucket all related or mostly related?
Is there a state census earlier than 1790 or an earlier tax list?
Were these Nantucket Russells mostly Quakers?
Did the Nantucket Russells come from New Bedford or Plymouth or Duxbury or a variety of places?
