*The Russellsí house was on a by-road leading southward from the Cole Harbour Road. This by-road is a little over a quarter of a mile eastward of the junction of the Cole Harbour with the Old Preston Road, and therefore a little more than two miles from Dartmouth. The house was three hundred and thirty yards from the highway. B. Russell, Esq., says that the doub!e-house which is now at that place is not the one in which the tragedy occurred, but that it is on the same site. This double-house, he informs me, was built later by his father, the second Nathaniel Russell. Miss Russell was familiarly known as Polly Russell; and a large apple tree, which doubtless still stands near the present house, was known as Pollyís tree. She is described as a very excel-lent girl. Her sisterís name was Rebecca. óEd.
