O'REAR FAMILY HISTORY©

Revised 14 February 2005

This line connects to the Russell line in Missouri and is only a hypothesis as it may prove that we have been tracing the incorrect Russell lineage.  There is question in my mind as to whether or not the Lee R. Russell named in the family of James Hughes Russell family is the correct Lee R. Russell.  The connection is based upon census information regarding the birthplace of Lee R. Russell, however it is noted that there were other Lee Russells in Missouri at that time and with the same approximate birth date.
