Can someone help connect Helen Louise LEONARD aka: "Lillian Russell" to the world tree? [closed]

Lillian RUSSELL is one of our unconnected notables. She was born Helen Louise LEONARD.  This notable is still not connected to the tree even with the profiles of her siblings, parents, grandparents and multiple marriages added. A few of her ancestors are orphans and a lot of work is needed in terms of sources and biographies as well. I am going to try to work on her grandfather in this regard, but thought if anyone wanted to try to help connect her to the tree it would help a lot. If we could connect her, would it not also connect at least 14 other unconnected profiles that are linked to her as grandparents, parents, siblings, spouses, children, etc.? Just thought it might interest some connectors with the connectors challenge going on this month.

I might have done it earlier. I think I found her great grandmother and got her great grandfather from DAR site.
which names are you talking about ? Thanks

Her parents.

Mercy Ottis is connected 13 degrees from Elenor Glyn, 19 from Frances Weidman and 13 from Victoria
Thanks. The Hicks connection I made was 15 degrees from Elinor Glyn.
Every connection helps the tree.
Sheesh, that also connected me to her. Small world.
Yes I agree that Wikitree benefits from every coonnection :).

Before I wasn't really following how closely connected they were, but just in the past few days, I came off participating in connecting Arthur Steitz, where there were about 5 connections made and they were all talking about who was the closest. So it was still on my mind.
Yes, was not hoping for a connection with myself, but it seems we share an ancestor. Lol small world.

I will be able to connect this one up but have to enter a few more HICKS.

She will show up connected tomorrow through the links I made.

But there is problem with the current father of this HICKS guy ...

HINSHAW Quaker encyclopedia says his father is a Benjamin not the Thomas that Wikitree has. Can we correct this ? Thanks
