Hezekiah Russell, Kent County, MD
I am researching The Russell family. I just recently found that my 4th great grandfather and mother were Hezekiah and Harriette Russell. I have found a Hezekiah Russell, a free-black in the 1820 census in Kent Co, Medley's Dist. 2, MD. I know that Hezekiah's son, my 3rd great-grand father, Benajmin Russell, was born in Maryland abt. 1807 and left for Canada around 1840 with his wife Elizabeth and 2 daughters. I am unfamiliar with Maryland records and need to be pointed in the right direction to continue my research. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
