Parents:  Wm and Mary (Groves) Russell.  Any info at all.

Searching for William Russell is looking for a needle in a haystack, but I shall persevere. Thank you for any help.

Dorchester, England or Dorchester MA, Dorchester Village or County?
There are no Hester Russells baptised in or around 1856 in the 3 Anglican parishes of Dorchester, (England) nor in neighbouring Fordington.There are no Hesters in the 1861 census for either place.

(so I guess it might be the US!)
