David Russell was born in Randolph County, Illinois, August 5, 1844, and died at his home in Clay Center, Kansas, July 24, 1927, at the age of nearly 83 years. He went to Clay county in 1879, and lived on a farm two miles east of town until 1883, when he moved to Union Township, where he lived nearly thirty years, and until he retired and moved to Clay Center in 1910. In 1866 he married Sallie Hair, who died April 23, 1901. Eight children were born of this marriage, of whom two died in infancy, John H. Russell, the elder son died on June 24, 1921. Four daughters: Mrs. A. H. Shaw of St. Louis; Mrs. Paul Borland, of Exeter Township; and Mrs. E. H. McClurken of Fort Morgan, Colorado; (only 3 mentioned) and one son A. R. Russell, of St. Louis, survive. In 1909 he married Mrs. Amanda Anderson, who still survives. In early manhood he united with the Reformed Presbyterian church of Coulterville, Illinois and remained a member there until he came to Kansas, where he united with Reformed Presbyterian church of Republican City, later transferring his membership to the Four Mile U. P. Church, being a charter member of that organization, of which he remained a member until his death. He was the last member of a large family. His death occurred on the sixth anniversary of the death of his oldest son, John. Short services were conducted at the home Sunday, after which the remains were taken to the First Presbyterian church where Dr. L. A. Benson conducted the funeral services. Interment was in Greenwood Cemetery. [Coulterville Republican, June 24, 1927]
