Rusow, Russow, or Rusaw research

Would like to connect with others who are researching the surname Rusow, Russow, or Rusaw. I descend from Peter Rusow who married Peggy Sarah Fields in Ray Co., MO, in 1830. They had 3 sons: James, Ebenezer, and Joseph. All three sons married and had children.

James lived in MO until c. 1880, then moved to Benton Co., AR. His sons lived in MO, Benton Co., AR, and some went west to Idaho, Oregon, and some descendants ended up in California.

Ebenezer Rusow, wife, and children left MO c. 1873 and moved to Pierce Co., WA, where he died in 1883. His children lived in WA and perhaps elsewhere.

Joseph, wife, and children left Mo c. 1873. One story is that he died en route to Oregon. I do not know if that is correct or not. A son ended up in Idaho, lived in Oregon, and died in Walla Walla, WA. Descendants lived in Oregon.

Please contact me if you are researching RUSOW, Russow, Rusaw to compare and share info. Helen Graves
