Lind and Riis give conflicting information about David Russel's rank and service dates. However, Russel was married to Catharina who settled in Elsinore about 1633. She had to pay her husband's debts after his death and eventually asked the Government to intervene which it did in 1642. Legal action was taken against Russel's former ensign Christian Machab├Žus who owed Russel 100 rixdollers.
