Trying to find Russell

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

My grandfather, Frederick Geater RUSSELL, was born in 1891 in Aberdeen, the second youngest of 9 born to Patrick Russell (print compositor) and Barbara GEATER He had sisters named Elizabeth, Emma, Mary and Barbara, and his brothers were Patrick, David, Francis and John. Patrick died aged 19 in 1901; Emma married Robert Wishart & went to the States, as did Barbara with husband David Moir. I believe Mary went to South Africa. Have tracked down the girls but Francis and David elude me completely! Any information about any descendants would be much appreciated!
