Quoting from his obituarty in the STEUBEN REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1903, page 1, column 6, and posted on the Steuben County, Indiana USGenWeb: "Peter W. Russell was born in Manchester, Ontario county, New York, July 20, 1829, and died at his home in Angola, Ind., Jan. 28, 1903, aged 73 years, 6 months and 8 days. Deceased was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert R. Russell, and was one of five children, his mother dying when he was only seven years of age. August 24, 1854, he was joined in marriage with Susan M. Isenhour, at Hopewell, Ontario county, New York,... To the union were born two children, a son who died in infancy and a daughter, now Mrs. M. D. Teal, of Toledo, Ohio....Mr. and Mrs. Russell came to Steuben county, Indiana, in 1856, first settling on a farm near Orland, and in 1859, they came to Angola taking charge of the Eureka hotel,... After a few years he sold the hotel, and in 1866 it was destroyed by fire. Soon after this he bought what was known as the Eldorado, which thereafter was known as the Russell house, and in which he continued the hotel business until about 1880, when they moved to the beautiful home on South Wayne street. In 1871, Mr. Russell, in company with Charles F. and John J. Kinney, Wm. G. Croxton and J. A. Woodhull, established the banking house of Kinney & Co., the pioneer bank of the county. In the death of Mr. Russell, Angola loses one of its most prominent characters in business and social circles."
