Mrs. Emeline D. Russell

Died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J.E. Melville in Bogard, Missouri May 1, 1908, Mrs. Emeline D. Russell.

Miss Emeline D. Jaquith was born at Wrightís Corner, eight miles west of Lawrenceburg, Dearborn county, Indiana, November 6, 1821. She was married to Mr. Roswell Russell, Oct. 18, 1838. To this union were born four children, Luther G., Clementine A., Jane E. and Sullivan J.

Mr. Russell moved his family from Wright's they celebrated their golden wedding, which was attended by a large circle of friends and neighbors. During their stay in Elmwood, two of their children located at Cromwell, Iowa, desiring to be near them. Father and Mother Russell came to Cromwell about the year 1890.

On their farm in Illinois, by industry and frugality they had accumulated enough means to give them a competence for life's needs and to help their children start in the way of a living for themselves.

Father Russell was called to the heavenly home in 1892 and his remains interred at Cromwell. After the husband's and father's death, Mrs. Russell divided her time, living with her two daughters, Mrs. C.A. Barber of Kansas City, Missouri and Mrs. J.E. Melville of Bogard, Missouri. In her death she leaves her two daughters here to mourn their loss; her two sons had passed to the beyond before her.

Mrs. Russell experienced religion and united with the Freewill Baptist church at Wright's Corner, Indiana, when quite young. When located on the farm in Illinois, as the country was new, they used their influence to organize a Sunday School in their own home. Also had preaching service, when ministers would come into the neighborhood. There was no church or school house near them. In 1860, Brother and Sister Russell were charter members of a Freewill Baptist church organized by the writer, four miles north of the farm where they lived, at a school house near Rochester Ill. While living in Elmwood, they cast in their lot with the Congregational church at that place; also at Cromwell while there holding their membership in that church, until called to the church triumphant. Sister Russell lived a helpful, cheerful devoted christian life, faithful companion, loving mother, a true friend.

Her remains were taken to Cromwell, Iowa, where, after a service at the grave, her body was laid to rest by the side of her husband to await the resurrection morning.

Edwin Jaquith, whose illness was reported in last week's Press, died at the home of an aunt at Hebron, O., a few hours after his father, Dr. O. S. Jaquith, arrived to accompany him home.

Edwin was thirteen years old. He was a bright boy, a great reader and a regular attendant at Bible school and church services until prevented by declining health.

From early childhood Edwin was a member of the Bible school of the Christian church and surrounded by Christian influences in the home, in the fall of 1916, he was led to give his heart to Christ and identify himself with the church of his parents in this city.

Edwin was an unusually bright boy, for though through illness he was kept out of school part of the time he yet maintained a high standing in his classes.

During the past year and a half he and his parents put up a brave battle for is continued existence among us. The last battle was fought May 1st, when our dear young friend passed from the church mitant to the church triumphant, aged 13 years, 3 months, leaving to mourn his absence his parents, three sisters, Mildred, Maurine and Frances, other relatives and a host of friends. What is our loss is Edward's eternal.

She was also a member of the Pi Beta Phi Mother's Club. She had builded a strong christian character, and was a true and loyal wife and a devoted mother.

This brief message to all our friends, is for the purpose of conveying our sincere appreciation of the many tokens of kindness and sympathy expressed to us at our last sad visit to Lawrenceburg, when we buried our best friend, our wife and mother.
