I hope someone out there can help me. This is a real longshot but, I am up against a brick wall.
I had a great aunt named Mary Lulu Alcott OVERTON b. 28 Jan 1893 and d. 11 Jan 1897 (both born and died in Rock Creek, Ca).Her parents were Agrippa Lawrence OVERTON and Alma Clothilda RUSSELL.I have the OVERTON line back several generations and have not found a surname of ALCOTT.All I know about Alma Clothilda RUSSELL is that she was the dau of Ira RUSSELL and an unknown mother.She was born in Indiana or Michigan and married Agrippa Lawrence OVERTON in the 1850's in Marion Co. IA.They then moved to California.
I don't know if "Alcott" is a family surname but it is a strange "given" name unless it IS a family name. (Who knows maybe my gr grandmother read "Little Women" while she was expecting!)Does anyone recognize any of these names?If there is a connection, I assume it is on the RUSSELL side........perhaps Alma's mother's maiden name (just a guess).My grandfather and all his siblings have long been gone so, threre is no one to ask for possible leads.
If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you Rosemary
