Joseph Lafayette Russell, b. May 22, 1845, S. Charleston, Clark Co, Ohio, died we believe Feb. 7, 1926, buried in Grenola, Elk Co., KS. On Nov. 4, 1868, Macon, Illinois, he married Mary P. "Mollie" Lawyer, b. ca. 1853, d. Oct. 8, 1892, buried beside her husband. Not sure how many children they had. I have names for five. One daughter, Nellie, married J.H. Edenfield. Another daughter, Josie, married Harry Bumgardner. Three sons, Charles, Claude, (neither married), and Albert. When Mary died, Joseph married March 26, 1899, Marshall, Saline Co, MO to Susie D. Murphy, b. May 19, 1880, d. 1962 in Okla. City, OK. They had one daughter, Irene Leora Russell, b. March 26, 1900, Napton, Saline Co, MO. Nellie (Russell) Edenfield is buried in Oxford, Sumner Co, KS. Does anyone think they see a connection? I would appreciate hearing from anyone on any of these names. Thank you in advance.
