I have Russell's massive genealogy effort. His was from Marion, OH, went to Pleasent H.S. and was the son of Luther Emmet and Ruby (Russell) Frans with many connections to Missouri. Family names...Dripps, McFarland...some go back many centuries! If there are any cousins who would like to have his work plus other family mementos please contact me at email@example.com. I live in Delaware, OH. Met Russ at OSU in 1956...we were both astronomy buffs and kept our friendship ever since.
