Russell Cemetery Photo Gallery

I have two sets of photos will be posting here; I can't delete or throw away any photos so you will see some here twice and then at the bottom the second set is on my New Power Shot Canon digital and I just love it. Plus, on the lower photos you will see where we had a picnic by the Rambo's buried there. Some were taken on my older digital camera and then last Saturday, March 11, 2006, my daughter, Ophelia, our dog, and Rachael, our other dog were out trying out my newer Digital camera which I think takes the most wonderful photos plus, it's the best camera I've ever owned. The photo gallery below was taken last fall with my older camera.

The next separate photo gallery was taken last Saturday, March 11, 2006.  Didn't get to all the little ones that were unreadable and a couple we still need to dig up to photo better in the Newer photos.

June 1897 Newspaper

     Persons interested in the Russell cemetery, with some of their friends, gathered at the cemetery for the purpose of holding memorial services and electing trustees. The meeting was called to order at 2 o'clock by Edmund Russell.

     First in order was a song, "The Fallen Brave", sung by a double quartet, led by Miss Jennie Miles, Miss Georgia Wesner presiding at the organ. Prayer was offered by Rev. A. P. Rolen, of Gilson. Song, "They Died Not In Vain".

     David Russell was called forward to tell something of the history of the selection of this spot by his grandmother, Patience Russell, more than 56 years ago. Mrs. Russell was the first one to be buried in the new cemetery. Her husband quarried a rock and lettered a tombstone, which now stands over her grave.
     The next speaker was Rev. H. P. Kline, of Gilson, who made a brief address, and was followed by Rev. A. P. Rolen, who spoke a few moments. "America" was then rendered by the quartet, and James Rebstock, of Gilson, read the names of the soldiers buried here and directed the work of a dozen little girls, who decorated with beautiful flowers the graves of the fallen heroes.
     At the business meeting which followed, E. Russell was elected trustee. A few remarks were then made by Mr. Russell. Over three hundred persons were in attendance. The music was excellent, and the speeches were all good.

 

These were taken with my newer Canon PowerShot Digital Camera, I just love it.
