There was an Absalom Russell who is listed as serving on the roll of Captain
Jesse Coffee's Company, Kentucky Mounted Volunteers Militia commanded by
Lieutenant Colonel Richard Davenport. The day of muster was 26 August, 1813
and he served until 09 NOV 1813. Source: "Kentucky Soldiers of the War of
1812" compiled by Minnie S. Wilder. Does this help?
