Photographer A.J. Russell's family
I am trying to find out if my great grandfather, who was a blacksmith and helped build the railroad from El Paso to Chihuahua around the turn of the last century is related by any chance to A.J. Russell. My great grandfather's name ... was James Arthur Russell. I realize they are not the same person. He was probably born sometime around 1870, although may be slightly younger. I know you may not be able to help me, but did A.J. Russell have brothers or was he ever married and had children? My grandfather, Russell's son – A.J. Marrs also worked for a short period for the railroad.
