      12. Samuel R.2 Russell (William1) was born November 08, 1805 in Cumberland Co., VA, and died October 04, 1876 in Newton, Jasper Co., IA. He married Mary Price Duncan February 02, 1826 in Buckingham Co., VA (?), daughter of John Duncan and Anne Bondurant. She was born November 17, 1809 in Albemarle Co., VA, and died September 23, 1897 in Newton, Jasper Co., IA.

Notes for Samuel R. Russell:
Nowhere have I seen mention of a middle name for Samuel. His middle initial is given only once in the Jasper County obituary of his wife Mary Duncan, and there it is given as "R". However, in the Chancery Court proceedings of Cumberland County, Virginia following his father's death he is possibly listed as "James" (difficult to read) along with his sisters Terresa [sic?] and Eliza Barnes Russell. The spelling is difficult to read and as there are no other extant children ever mentioned, I believe that there is a possibility that this was his middle name. Samuel Russell came west from Ohio in August 1876 to visit his children. His wife, Mary Price Duncan Russell, travelled with him. He was bitten by a mosquito in Jasper County, Iowa and died of Typhoid fever several weeks later. A transcript of his "Notice of Filing of Will" reads:

RUSSELL, Samuel, "of Highland County, Ohio, now visiting his children in Jasper County, Iowa". Date: August 22, 1876. Wife: Mary P. Children: Samuel G., John W., Ann E. wife of John W. Murphy, Benjamin J., "all the above named heirs now living in Jasper County, Iowa", Mary J. wife of C. L. Bennett "of Highland County, Ohio". Too: "William Camey a boy who I have raised and generally known as William Russell". Executor: Samuel G. Russell. Witnesses: J. D. Zink, D. E. Murphy. Proven Jasper County, Iowa, by the witnesses November 5, 1876 was filed with the above will and signed by Mary P. Russell (widow), J. W. Russell, B. J. Russell, S. G. Russell, Ann E. Murphy, J. W. Murphy, Mary J. Bennett, William Russell. Appraisers: E. G. Boatright, Jas. Oldaker, P. F. Jonte.

Notes for Mary Price Duncan:
The Newton Record Friday, October 1, 1897 Obituary of Grandma Russell: Died, at the home of her son in this city, on Thursday, Sept. 23, at about one o’clock P.M., Mrs. Mary P. Russell, aged 87 years, 10 months and 10 days. Mother Russell’s maiden name was Mary Price Duncan. She was born in Aldermanic [sic] County, Va., (no such County - most likely Albemarle County) on the 17th of November 1809 and was married to Samuel Russell February 2, 1826. In the fall of 1831, they immigrated to Highland Co., Ohio, where they lived until the summer of 1876. At that time they came to this county to visit their children in Buena Vista Township, when Mr. Russell was attacked with typhoid fever and died on the fourth of October of that same year, and from that time, Mrs. Russell has made her home with her son, Samuel G. Russell of this city. She, with her husband, united with the Presbyterian Church in 1826 and for almost fifty years were members of the Old Crusade Church of Hillsboro, Ohio. After coming to Iowa she united with the Hixson Grove Chapel people and recently removed her membership to the Presbyterian Church in Newton.

Mother Russell has long been in very feeble health, and for over two months has been confined to her bed, requiring constant care and attention, which were freely and tenderly given her by her loved ones. She leaves three sons, J. W., B. J. and S. G. Russell, all of whom reside in this city, and two daughters, Mrs. John W. Murphy of Murphy and Mrs. M. J. Bennett of Chattanooga, Tenn., all of them being present when their aged mother passed away. Brief services were held at the residence at 1 o’clock, Saturday, after which the remains were taken to Hixson Grove Chapel where services were conducted by Rev. E. J. Rice, a large concourse of old neighbors and friends being present. The interment was in Slagel Cemetery.

Mary's middle name of Price is attached to many of the Russell's of Virginia of the 1700's. General William Russell and his son Col. William Russell of Culpepper County, Virginia and Tennessee both had Prices in their family / marriage lines. I have yet (05/03) to find a relationship between this famous branch of the Russells and ours. -DR

  34 v.   Robert Henry Russell, born July 07, 1838 in Highland Co., OH; died May 05, 1866 in San Francisco, CA.
  Notes for Robert Henry Russell:
One of the more interesting stories of the Jasper County Russells concerns Robert Henry Russell who joined the army without his parents' consent during the Civil War - was sent to San Francisco by the water route and stationed there. He then wrote home for a time, but letters ceased and after years of anxious waiting his relatives gave him up for dead. About twenty-five or thirty years later Wildman Murphy, at the request of Robert's aged mother (Mary Duncan Russell), searched the soldiers' Cemetery in San Francisco and found a small marker on which was his cousin's name and other identifying data.

His bones were disinterred, shipped back to Newton, IA, and tenderly reinterred in the Slagel Cemetery, Jasper Co., IA in the presence of his mother, Mrs. Mary Price Duncan Russell; his brothers, John W. Russell, B. J. Russell and Sam G. Russell and his sister Mrs. J. W. (Ann Eliza Russell) Murphy and many other friends and family. Rev. R. C. F. Chambers reviewed briefly the unusual circumstances and offered a prayer. A hymn was sung and thus, after nearly thirty years, all that was mortal of Robert Henry Russell received a Christian burial. June 7, 1934, by Lola V. Murphy Wilson

The Grinnell marble men erected a monument last week for Grandpa Russell and his son Robert, who are buried in the Slagel Cemetery. ~ The Newton Record, Part Two, Friday, January 10, 1896, Page 4, Column 1
