Margaret FLANAGAN wrote in her bible c 1870 that she was born 29 July 1832 at Russell Town, Parish of Ardstraw, 'on the margins of her cousins estate'. She arrived in South Australia Nov 5th 1848 on the 'Roman Emporer' - this first boat load of Irish Orphans to come to this state. I have a copy of a map with Russell Town located on it, but the map on this site does not show it. According to my map Russell Town is the greyed out are just north of Letterbin. Can anyone help with the history of this area and identify any families living there in the 1830/40;s period?
