Age 18.

Russell was the third-born child of twelve and the third-born son of seven.

[Russell was originally buried in Day Cemetery, Tarrant County, Texas as was his mother Fannie and his sister Emily.

In 1949 the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers moved the graves from Day cemetery and four others during the construction of Benbrook Lake. The new resting place was the Merinda Seminary Graveyard, now known as Benbrook Cemetery. All of the information on this page was abstracted from the Corp of Engineers 1949 report titled "Cemetery Relocation Plan, Benbrook Dam and Reservoir."

Dec. 10, 1840 - Dec. 20, 1885
