Can you explain "why" you have been ignoring my e-mail to you of late?
I thought you and I had a long standing relationship with Jones County
lineages? If I have done something wrong, please let me know so I can
I see nothing to indicate that Clement, Sabra, or Wales Russel/Russell died
in Jones Co., IA.
Clement Russel was a colorful character and one of the first families in
Jones Co. On page 459 of the 1879 Jones County History there is one of many
anedotes about Clement. A Justice of the Peace married Clement's daughter to
a young man without Clement's approval - probably Mariette Russell and Wm.
B.Curtis who were married on 12/26/1841 License #2 Page #2. The couple
supposedly left for Illinois.
Clement Russel certainly lived and owned a retail establishment in Jones Co
during the 1840/1841 period. However, I see no reference to him after 1842.
The 1879 History states that Clement was from Michigan. Which agrees with
the 1850 & 1854 Federal Census which shows Sabra C. Russel in Clinton Co.,
MI, in WatertownTwp, Page #032.
Any information you have concerning Clement Russel would make a good addition
to our Jones County Society library. Please keep us in mind.
Hope this helps.
