back Benjamin Russell (1643-1691) next
Wilkins1 shows the same photo, but a bit closer up.

Benjamin grew up across the street (the Woburn Road in Cambridge Farms, later Lexington) from our 8GGParents William and Mary Munroe. In 1671-2, he (then almost 30) and his brother John played a neighborly role in support of the Munroes in the Case of the Purloined Swine. The story, which I’ve documented from Middlesex County court records, deserves your close attention.
