About Our Family Research

Jerry and Ann Russell have five children and 10 grandchildren. We have researched the Russell side of the family and developed a Russell family tree with 75 ancestors. This goes back to the 1700,s in England and Holland. It also includes an American indian born in 1605 on Long Island New York, Catoneras WYANDANCE. She and her descendants, had a land claim for most of the island. It was judged valid by the courts before the revolution, but was ignored after. Also the Van Tassel family are noteworthy in that Washington Irvine stayed at their house when he wrote "The legend of sleepy hollow", and they are mentioned in the story. One branch goes back to early England where a relative, Lord Burghly, was a knight of the garter, raised an army and fought for the queen and was her chief adviser.
There is also a family tree for Anna Baker Russell. It only goes back four generations for now, but has many more of the descendants of Christian Spaeth shown
