S. S. Russell, Neposnet subject of this following sketch, was born April 28, 1850, in Marshall County, Ind. He is a son of James and Harriet (Pittenger) Russell (see preceding sketch - E.C. Russell). Our subject was educated in Bureau County, to which he came with his parents. He is one of our most wide awake, thrifty farmers, and owns a farm of 160 acres.

He was married here January 4, 1877, to Miss Eliza E. Gould, who was born July 8, 1856, in Naponset Township. Her father, Abraham Gould, is a native of England. This union has been blessed with one child - Ward Russell - who was born September 30, 1879.

Politically Mr. Russell is a supporter of the Republican party.
