Hi My great grandmother was Elizabeth Chamberlain who married Charles Alexander Flower Russell. Her parents being Thomas Chamberlain and Hannah Close. And my records show Thomas's parents were Shadrach Chamberlain and Elizabeth Ann Pester. Elizabeth and Charles had 11 children born between 1885 and 1910, I spent many years searching for their marriage and thinking it would be around 1885 but finally discovered they werent married until 1929.
