George John RUSSELL born 1843/44 was my great grandfather. He was born in London, his father being John RUSSELL born 1819 in Stanton Harcourt Oxon. John RUSSELL was married to Elizabeth ODGERS from Cornwall in 1845 in London but she is not George John RUSSELL's mother.There are several George or George John Russell's in London at this time and to compound the situation he was married as John George Russell. In 1864 he married Sarah Ann Pratt and had four children, two of whom died young. My grandfather, Charles Henry and Sarah Elizabeth Adeline survived. At the age of 27 he died of a fractured skull as a result of an accident at work in a brewery in Whitechapel on 19th February 1871. I am unable to progress until I know who my great grandmother was. The children were born in the areas of Whitechapel/Mile End/and Bethnal Green. So far I have been unable to obtain the Coroner's report. John RUSSELL went on to have thirteen children and according to his marriage certificate he was a bachelor prior to marrying Elizabeth ODGERS. Any help with this brick wall would be gratefully received. Edna
