Lots of coincidences with these families.I don’t believe they are the same person but were perhaps named after the same person.It is difficult to do research on this family because the many variations of spelling.I am sure it is because it is transcribed as a Rossell with a double “s” but many certainly have been Roszell with an “sz” or vice versa.In old script double "s" would appear to be an "sz" to modern day readers / transcribers.By the time the name gets to my generation it only has one “s”.I am a descendant of Charles (child viii).This was the family I cut my genealogy baby teeth on but have only gotten as far as an 1850 census where Theo is with father Benjamin in NJ.Reading your post makes me wonder if I have the right man or not.Will have to revisit this family now.Most of my information is out of Ohio.If you see anything that interests you please reply.
