Hi Matt Jordan, I too am looking for a Hannah Russell born about 1853 as she was married to one of my ancestors...Jason J. Manley (1828 - 1881) in Edwards county in 1877. I believe at that time her name was Hannah Hughes. They had a son, Lewis Benjamin Manley born in late 1878. After Jason died in late 1881, Hannah remarried to a Jones, I believe, and after that I haven't been able to track or trace her. I often wonder what became of her and especially of the son she and Jason had. Jason's marriage to her, the birth of their son, his death and her remarriage are all recorded in Edwards County. I believe we are looking for the same person. Any light you can shed on this would be helpful. One of Jason's daughters by his first wife, Maria C. Manley Vincent (1855 - 1936), was one of my great-great grandmothers. I'm pretty sure Jason's first wife died in early 1877 and he wasn't widowed very long before marrying Hannah Hughes, nee Russell. I'm in central Illinois. Where are you? Gary L. Shaffer
