Timothy Russell, John's father, was still alive in 1860 and according to the 1860 Census, Timothy was born ab. 1775.
My best approach is this (All the records: Wethersfield, Hartford, CT).
Timothy Russell was born 1 Feb 1775. He was the son of Timothy Rusell Sr. and Martha.
Timothy Russell Jr. (and unknown wife) had two children:
- Hannah, born 4 Jun 1810.
- John Russell, born 11 May 1814.
In the 1830 Census, down half of the page, there is listed Timothy Russell Sr. (handwiting reads "Rufsell") born ab.1740-1750 and a "female" born ab. 1750-1760 (Martha, his wife).
Three lines more below is listed Timothy Jr. born ab. 1770-1780, his wife born ab. 1770-1780 and a boy and a girl, both children born. ab. 1810-1815 (Hannah and John).
Timothy Russell Sr. and Martha Deming got married 23 Feb 1769 (Date of marriage doesn't show up in the record).
Timothy Russell Sr. was born 31 Dec 1744. He was the son of John Russell and Elizabeth Crane.
John and Elizabeth got married 1 Dec 1725.
