My wife and I have researched our families back to the 1700's.
The Russell family line we are from Stephen Russell, Lyme Twp., Huron County, Ohio.
Some of the surnames we have are:
Russell, Jackson, Burks, Courtad(Courtade), Weaver, Hartman, Benner, Meyers(Myers), Swartz, Burkett, and more.
Our daughter-in-law is also now researching her family line which includes:Mahnke, Lanesky, and Tafrov. Only she is at a stand still on the Tafrov of Bulgaria, and John Lanesky.
We will update as soon as we can with more once we get the information together in some kind of order.
