I. Russell was born to William Henry & Lydia (Lentz) Jordan, in Keokuk County Iowa, moving with his parents to Jewell County, KS. when 10 years old.
He married Cora F. Bowles on Feb. 9, 1897 in Jewell County, KS. She suffered from TB & died during childbirth, along with her baby daughter.
On August 18, 1903, he married Maggie Moore,in Jewell Co. To this union, Lydia Helen & Harold was born. Russ was an industrious, hard working man. He was economical & thorough in everything he did. He had been one of our foremost respected citizens.
Then about 10 years before his death, he began having some mental problems. This would come & go. Just when the family thought he was doing fine again, he arose from his bed early in the morning, went barefoot to the garage, where he fatally shot himself.
