I understand your frustration. However, I am comfortable with the story as I have written it. I am writing a book about the Russ family and had wondered how Jonathan Russ, a young single man could have come down from MA and become a plantation owner. This story certainly makes sense to me
I know for sure that hat Jonathan Russ existed and that he was listed as the owner of Cainhoy around 1705 when his brother John's family came to live there. I also know that her father, being a landgrave, was plenty wealthy enough to give him a plantation when Jonathan married his daughter. Jonathan Russ was certainly not royalty -- but the son of a dissenter and a miller who owned a gristmill in Andover, MA.
Elizabeth could not have been the daughter of Robert's second wife as she was only sixteen when she marrdied Robert making Martha, the stepmom only six years older than his daughter Elizabeth. We have proof that the children existed through parish records.
Not being of any relation to Robert Daniell,I will not delve into his past any further and choose to accept what the historians have written about him.
