I had planned to go to the Courthouse if they will let me search. I know some of them don't want to be bothered with it now since most have sent everything they could to the libraries, but thought I would try it anyway, and also Lebanon (Russell Co.). I don't know that I will find anything but I need to go back anyway. Maybe I'll get lucky!!
I just feel like he was related to someone in that area or at least nearby. Surely, he didn't just wake up one day and think, hmmm...I think I'll go to Russell County, VA! There had to be a reason.
