Russell/Meinsinger/Cheney/Andrews Douglas Co., Mo.
Posted by: Mary McNelly Date: October 29, 2001 at 20:07:01
  of 932

My grandfather was William Wallace Russell, he moved with his wife Margaret Ann Meinsinger Russell and their 5 children to the Ava, Douglas Co., Mo. area in the mid to latter 1880's. Margaret Ann's sister, a widow and her two children moved there too. Margaret Ann died sometime in 1888-89. Her sister Jane Christiana Meinsinger Russell (her late husband was a William T. Russell), and William Wallace Russell were married shortly after, her two children needed a father and his children needed a mother. She died about 18 mo. after they married, of the same disease that took her sister, Consumption. On 23 May 1893, at Ava, Mo. he married my grandmother, Maud Ellen "Ellie" Cheney, she was 17 yrs. old and he was 45. I need help, to find the dates of death for Margaret Ann Russell and Jane Christiana Russell and the marriage date of William W. and Jane. Can anyone help me out. Thanks. Mary
