My great great-grandfather Seneca D. Russell was born in New York; he married Tabitha Rodgers.One census report showed that Seneca worked in “teaming,” and I think that he drove a freight wagon or stagecoach.
This couple had a son Albert Russell, who was my great grandfather.I thought that Albert was born in Morrow County, Ohio; but I recently discovered a Civil War service record that showed his birth in Troy, Ohio, in 1845.
Albert apparently used three different birth years in his life: 1843, 1845 and 1847.Family sources report that Albert’s twin Delbert died.
Albert’s siblings were George, Minerva, Elizabeth, William and Warren.
Do any of these names relate to families in Miami County?Has anyone heard of Tabitha Rodgers? Any help appreciated.This family is hard to track, but I have data on Elizabeth and Minerva and will share it.
