Hi Betty and MaryI have been looking at this forum for awhile and must join you. As you know Bettye I am your first cousin and I do have some info for both of you. I have some of Patsy's copies and she was in touch with you Mary at one time.I have a letter you wrote to another member of the Russoms.I have in my possession a ledger book from a mining co. in GA that lists much of the info and I had made Patsy a copy of it. I am certainly happy to share anything I have. The book was given to me by our fathers first cousin. I also have some large old pictures of Russom men I would love to identify. Shirley(Bettye's sister) told me there was always rumors that William Oliver Russom our grandfather had abandoned a family before marrying our grandmother and I would love to know more about that family if it exists.Does anyone know the relationship of Leon Russom ( the actor). He looks so much like my father. I have wondered if he could possibly be the son of our fathers half brother.Contact me direct if you want at SuellenC@msn.com.
