      Researched by Graham Louer

      This John Russell was born in about 1645 or 1646 probably in Virginia, the exact date is not known. He married Alicia Billington in Old Rappahannock Co VA on 11 September 1673 and died by December 1674, LESS THAN 15 MONTHS LATER.
      He and Alicia MAY HAVE HAD one or possibly even two children in that 15 months, but there seems to be no proof, or even evidence, that they had children, much less what the child or childrenís names(s) was / were.

      I would happily discuss this with any interested readers
