Jane Russell, daughter of William and Margaret [nee McCULLY] Wardlaw, and wife of G.W. Dunbar was born in Gwinnett county, Georgia on June 29th, 1808 and died in Opelika, Alabama on August 12th, 1870. She joined the Presbyterian church at a very early age and continued a regular and consistent member thereof until called to the "church triumphant". Of the church, of which she was first a member, she was a communicant more than thirty years. She was married in 1828 and resided in Gwinett county until 1861, removing thence to Milton county, Georgia. She stayed in that county three years and moved to Opelika, Alabama and settled by her youngest brother, F.H. Wardlaw.
Of the five sons and one daughter whom she raised to be grown, she buried four sons and a daughter.


** No headstone for her in the DUNBAR plot in Rosemere Cemetery, so only assumptive she's buried with her husband. **
