I posted the biography for family researchers. A Russell family member (my line) married a Firestone.I am not related.
It would seem that since your family and the above family lived in Wayne Co., there could be a close relationship.
The "expert", though, is George Ely Russell, noted researcher, who answered my Russell message on GenForum.
Please contact him. I believe it is still his policy to charge for photocopies of his research and postage...
