DRAKE, RUSSELL, RUSSSELL posted by Gary Russell on Thursday, February 18, 1999

Looking for descendants of Maude, Belle, Rena, and Albert RUSSELL. Albert Merrill RUSSELL was born 1885 in or around Mix's Run, Cameron Co. Possibly related to Allen RUSSSELL (1830-1894) and Wilbur RUSSELL (1828-1882) who were born in Russell Hill, Pa, but moved to Cameron Co and formed business in lumber industry. Both killed in lumber camps. Rena later lived in Johnstown. Belle and Maude married Duke and Walter DRAKE of (I believe) Williamsport. Ultimate goal is to find names of parents of Albert M. RUSSELL.

I'd like your help in finding the spouse and children of my g grandfather. His name is John LAWSON and he lived in Cameron County as the following obituary from the Johnsonburg, March 27, 1914, paper notes: John LAWSON Killed Brother of Two Johnsonburg Ladies Was Killed on P & E Yesterday.
