People Looking for information

        I am looking for my father's people, Russells, Peacocks, Choates, and Taylors. My father was Charles Wyatt Russell, born in 1920 in Haslam, TX. His parents were Grady Russell and Lessie Choate Russell. Their parents were Lewis and Victoria Peacock Russell, and Robert and Anna Dora Taylor Choate. I am trying to determine when the Russells migrated to Shelby County from Coffee County, Alabama. It was after 1880, I think. I am also trying to find more information abt. the Choates and Taylors. Thanks, if you can help me!  Email   Victoria Russell Tangi
