Dear Kathy: James Russell and Townsend were both from Cabarrus Co NC/Mecklenberg Co NC area.
I know zero about details on Townsend off-springs, as never researched, had no cause to. Only noted the brother in law in order to establish James/Barbara-Barbary.
James and Barbara children were James Jr, John, Robert, and girls Elizabeth, Sarah, Bertha, and Narcissa Ann.
Though Barbara and Asy Gallimore evidently wanted to get married in 1820, 3 years after James killed, no record ever found by me to confirm it; in fact, other records seem to indicate not carried out. Could be, they kept it secret?, but no reason to. I believe the "marriage agreement" unstarched them. James had already unloaded some of the land, and Barbary in 1820 unloaded rest to the 3 boys.
James Russell was just one of the 13 Russell lines that "touched" ole' Buncombe Co NC, and all the counties formed from it, late 1700's untill 1900.
James kids married into the Livingstons, Garrens, Byers, Harpers, etc.
Good Hunting, Dick
PS: My straight lines, Buncombe/Haywood, Joseph Cross Sr, Rev War Veteran from York Co Penn, and 2nd wife, Sarah Cogdill; Josephs son William Cross and wife Rebecca; Joseph and Rebecca Cross's daughter, Matilda Cross, who married 1839, Haywood Co, to John H. Russell (1817SC - 1859 Cocke Co TN). John H. Russell was my Great Grandfather.
