?possible parents Freeman and Rebecca
Posted by: C (ID *****2516) Date: April 20, 2012 at 08:08:23
In Reply to: Freeman and Rebecca Russell Thomas by Janet McGuire of 27718

All from familysearch.org

It appears by looking at census data and location of census in Maine etc:

That Freeman is the son of Nelson Thomas and Susan Burnham. (Burnham) taken from death cert of one of Freemans siblings (see Elvira.)
Rebecca appears to be the daughter of Ephraim Russell and Rebekah Ireland.

Freeman had numerous siblings also listed here.

Some of his siblings moved to West Virginia, so that may be where his children first headed south?

There is MUCH more on familysearch if you plug in the indiv names and approx birth years in their search tool. You can find marriages/deaths etc. of his siblings, and their children and build a huge tree.

Rebecca Russell also has numerous siblings on familysearch. Put some examples at the end, did not look at the actual data of the births, marriages, deaths, but you can!

Hope this is the correct family group.
Good Luck
