Thanks to Ancestry.com I have been combing through the probate packets, and so far have not found the Russell connection. Haven't gotten to Terrill, Terrell/ Tirrell yet.
You would make me one happy camper if we were related.
p.s. Yes I have poured through census data and B, D, M vital records of Waterbury, Prospect, New Haven County, Cheshire and Naugatuck. I only have one record that ties them together. Their marriage on 27 November 1820 in Waterbury, Litchfield, CT USA. And Ransom's probate records.
