Links to this site have been posted before. I keep going back for more. There is new material on early Russellite history at Truthhistory.blogspot.com.
I am continually impressed with this sites forthright handling of Watch Tower history, even though the site owner is obviously either a Witness or Bible Student.
The discussion of A. D. Jones and J. H. Paton is well worth the time it takes to read. Scroll down to the post on Russell's early associates. There is research here I've seen no where else.
And you Masonic conspiracy buffs? Note that some of Russell's early associates were, just as he said they were, Masons.
