Biography of Simeon Russ
Farmington Franklin County, Maine Biographies





SIMEON RUSS. Nothing is known of the ancestry and birthplace of Simeon Russ, who was a settler in 1783 on front lot No. 15, east side (now owned by Benjamin Stanley), and made the first improvements above Joseph Brown's. He is next found on the farm now occupied by Elisha Bradford, and in 1793 on front lot No. 32, west side; thence he removed to the upper lot in town, known as the James Wellman farm. About 1820 he abandoned his family, upon the pretense of making a home in Canada, but it is believed that he went to Boston, where he is known to have resided in 1832, and where he probably died.
