I am going to Clark County hopefully on August 2 to put a end to the John Russell questions.

In 1850 John Russell is not in Clark Co Census. There are no Russellís index for that year in Clarke Co. But in house of Henry Roberts, are 4 Russell children. These are thought to be children of Mary Knight who married in 1830 in Marion Co. MS to a John Russell. Her birth is given as July 1810, John born ~ 1800-1810 It's thought that Mary Knight Russell remarried by 1850 to Henry Robert ( after a divorce from John Russell or after his death)
Both 1820 census of Marion Co. Ms and Washington Parrish LA have John Russell that looks to be already married with a young son in 1820. It possible that the was another John Russell too young to be head of household in 1830 that married Mary Knight in 1830.

(Elizabeth) Jane RUSSELL m. 25 June 1851 AXOM ROBERTS in Clark county in 1880
(William) Alexander Russell born 1831 LA, in TX in 1880
Charity Ann m James Hamilton Carr, in Lincoln Co. in 1880
Charley STB
unknown male

The 1840 census gives the age of John Russel to be 40-50. His wife age 30-40. This census also gives 4 son, and 2 daughters to this family.

POSSIBLE Children of John & Nancy _____ Russell
Mary Jane Russell m. Henry Carr in 1859, (I have Henry married to Mary Tate/Tait in 1865)
Charles (?C.)
Narcissa, who almost married David M Carr in 1858, but he married Rebecca Hayze 4 days later.
Francis (male) married Matilda Brown in 1855, Clarke Co.
Littleton N. who married Mary Etta Carr in Clarke Co. in 1856

These Russellís are missing from 1850 census, Littleton age 12, Narcissa age 17, Francis age 15, Charles age 19.
Narcissa Russell had a marriage licenses issue in 1858, to marry David Carr, another child of John Peter Carr. But this license was return unused, 3 days later he married someone else.
