Sad News

I'm very sad to hear of Russell's passing. My name is Cynthia McDaniel and I am the granddaughter of Alleen Towle, daughter of George G. Towle and Bertha Brice. I contacted Russell in the past regarding family history. Does anyone know how I can get a copy of Russell's Dutch Flat Chronicles? Thank you.

I have lots of family history and our connection with the Towle Brothers as well as Edwin Towle Robie and his son, Wendell Towle Robie (much-loved in Placer County).

I don't know how you can get copies of any of Russell's books - there are several. Maybe someone does.

Hi Cynthia,

I will be working to re-issue some of Russ's books (including Dutch Flat Chronicles) this summer. I'll post info here, and on the "North Fork Trails" blog ( when ready, so put a note on your calendar to check back in July or August. You can also email me at, and I'll add you to a mailing list of folks interested in his writings.
