Mr. & Mrs. Winfield Russian, 1906

I came across this news item in the Aug 3rd 1906 issue of The Commerce Journal:

Mr. & Mrs. Winfield Russian of Scatterbranch lost their twin babies five weeks old, Saturday and Monday.

See the clipping here:

Monday would have been July 23rd and Saturday would have been the 28th.

I could not find a burial for these in the Scatter Branch cemetery listed on Findagrave.

In the 1900 Census for Hunt Co., Justice Precinct 5 (All East of Turkey Creek), there is a Winfield Russian, single, recorded as born Apr 1875, Ark. and living with the Howell & Annie Fletcher family as a border. There is a Jno L. Russian, age 16, also born in Ark.

I could not find any thing else in a quick search but did see where "Russian" is also referred to as "Rushing".
