Notes for DOLPHUS S. RUSSELL: Lawson Review, October 22, 1928--Obituary of D. S. Russell--Dolphus S. Russell, son of J. B. and Sarah Russell, was born August 12, 1816, in Jackson County, Virginia and died at his home in Lawson, Mo., October 20, 1928, aged 82 years, 2 months and 8 days. Mr. Russell was married twice, first in 1869 to Miss Louvisa Titus. To this union were born 8 children, five of whom are now living. They are Mrs. Ida J. Stockard of Lawson; John A. Russell of Kansas City; V. H. and J. E. Russell of Lawson; and J. O. Russell of Lacygne, Kansas. Mrs. Russell died April 4, 1887. On Sept. 5, 1890 Mr. Russell was united in marriage to Maggie J. Logsden of Excelsior Springs. To this union were born 3 children, one of whom survives--George M. Russell of Lawson. Maggie J. Russell died July 10, 1928 at her home in Lawson. Mr. Russell is survived by 21 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He is also survived by one brother, Hamilton Russell. He united with the Christian Union church at the old Union many years ago, living in that faith throughout his life. He was a kind indulgent father and a good neighbor. To know him was to be his friend. He served with the Union army during the Civil War. Mr. Russell was a member of Co. C; 44th Regiment; Missouri Infantry. He was also one of the very few soldiers of the Union army in this vicinity--there are but few of the Civil war veterans who are yet living. John U. Hartman of Lawson, who will be 82 years old tomorrow, is now the only surviving Union soldier who lives in Lawson. Mr. Russell was the last of the original subscribers of the Lawson Review.
