|The first Russell in my line to come to the New World was Ralph Russell from Pontipool, England in the mid 1600's.He came with a son named John, since that time there have been a number of John's that start to confuse reseach.Ralph and his son settled in the town of Dartmouth, Massachusetts.They were one of the earliest settlers of the city.About a hundred years later members of the family had moved to the area around Fishkill NY.In about 1865 my Great-Great-GreatGrandfather moved to an area North of Bath, NY to help his widowed sister with her farm and began his own family.|
I am researching my family, in the following locations: Dutchess, Steuben County NY,for and the older New England states.
Dickerman's are another family that I'm researching with not a whole lot of luck.I have gotten back to Jesse N. Dickerman and have ran into the biggest wall.I think I have his father a Nathaniel but have yet proven it.
