- Mary Russell, sister of Ralph Russell.
Henry married MARY [-?-] 1645 (?) in Lynn, died before 1 Oct. 1695, probably in Monmouth Co., NJ. Mary was born ca. 1624/5 (see Salem Court Record 24 Sept. 1657 below), died in 1675 in Monmouth Co. An undocumented source indicates that Henry?s wife?s maiden name was Mary Russell and that they were married in Lynn. If this is true, then the next assumption might be that she was a sister or daughter of Ralph Russell. This Ralph Russell was a less-experienced forge helper with Henry and James Leonard at Hammersmith (the name of the ironworks at Lynn). A further assumption would be that Ralph was the father of John Russell of Dartmouth, MA. Mrs. Dorothy E. Hayes wrote in 1992 that Mary Russell was born ca. 1624, a sister of Ralph Russell.
