Hi Vivian,
I'm glad you posted this as it brought my attention to their listing in the TMC. I see the dates are incorrect for L C Russell. Not sure if it is a typo on my part or if it incorrect on original. I'll check at the Hist. Soc., but do you happen to have the birth/death dates for L .C. Russell?

I have added a link to this msg from the ROLL OF HONOR page
