THE STORY IS IN THE DETAILS
Just a thought - Maria Frances Ackley Russell's brother, Lemuel Ackley, trained as a lawyer and moved from Allegheny to Chicago at some time in the 1880s. When Maria left CTR in 1897 she went first to stay with him in Chicago. Lemuel died when he got shot in court in 1921.
I thought of that, but our lawyer person traveled there for one specific case. This does not seem to fit Lemuel.
It would have been rather nice if it had been him though.
