    Notes:

    When about a year old his parents moved to Seneca County; lived there about 5 years, and moved to Tyrone,Schuyler Co.,NY. Joel being the oldest of the family, and in very moderate circumstance, it become his lot to be deprived of many of the advantages of aquiring an education which many even in those days of poor schools enjoyed. At the age of nineteen he commenced his time from his father for $75 and working on a farm (in Enfield,NY) by the month, when he was 24 years old he had not only paid his father, but saved enough to purchase 90 acres of land in Howard,NY, In 1878 he was an owner of 288 acres of excellant land. Joel was a staunch Republican and during the Civil War ever by word and action maintained our nations cause, he gave his sons to his country. His sons Horace and Abram, both died in the Civil War (Horace Russell was in the 109th NY Regt. and died in Beltsville,MD 27 Oct 1862; Abram B. Russell was in the 141st NY Regt. and died in Indianaplois,IN 18 Jun 1865). At the time of his death, Joel mentions sons; Lewis P. of Howard,NY, Harrison of Fremont,NY and Joel W. of Bath,NY. The value of his estate was $4,180.52, including 107 acres of farm land in Howard,NY.

  3. A farmer from Howard was driving down Main Street[Hornell] yesterday afternoon behind a pair of spirited horses, when the animals took fright near the furniture factory and started on a brisk run. It was impossible to hold them and they ran across the bridge at high speed. In turning after crossing the bridge they upset the wagon and threw the man out. His head struck
    on a stone cutting a bad gash in his forehead. The team came to a stand still near the harness shop. Dr. Parkhill dressed the man's wound and he was soon able to proceed on his way home with a borrowed wagon, his own having been wrecked. The farmer's name was Joel Russell, somewhat advanced in years. He is not considered seriously injured."

    Death Record shows father as "Jno Russell" and mother as "Sarah Russell" - 1855 census of Tyrone shows she is 39 and had been living in town for 35 years - meaning her parents should be in the town in 1820 and 1830 census.

Gladys Burdett Boag said that her father Fred always like tell this story, as it was such a site to have her perched above all others as everyone was singing that song and then to see her fall as though it wasn't that solid of a rock after all.
