    • By process of elimination and search of Casey, Boyle and Lincoln Counties, Soundex Census searches located the family. The name Russell appeared without two "ls" and the 1860 Census looked like "Rufell" (I was told by a professional genealogist that the English writing often appeared to look like an "f" when in fact there was a double "s" in a name -they would stack part of an s on top of the other.)
      1850 Lincoln Co, page 272, listed James F Russel, 39, farmer, Alethia (?), 39, Malinda, 18, G.W, 16, Conrad, 13, J.H., 11, Amanda, 9, M., 7, illegible, /1 & illeg., /1. No real estate or pers prop value listed. They were listed in District 1.
      1860 Lincoln Co., p. 108, listed Jas. F. Rufell (the double stacked s), 49, Elethia, 49, Geo W, 26, Conrad, 22, Jacob H, 20, Amanda, 18, Margaret, 16 and Jas. R, 14. (census was to have been taken 1 June)
      1860 Census also listed the real estate value of $10500 and pers prop @ $3051.
      (With that value, either he is presumed to have had at least 1,000 acres of land or many slaves.)
      1870 Lincoln Co, Hustonville, P. 48, James F, 59, Alethia, 59 and George, 35, were the only ones remaining together. Real estate value was listed $730, and pers prop @ $1615.
      All births were in KY; Rolll 482, Bk 1, Hustonville.
      1880, in Ancestry.com, Lincoln Co. Hustonville listed him wife wife, LETHA. His father was listed as b. in VA. Son, George W also shown in 1880 census, with wife, Edna T... District 70, Hustonville; Fam Hist Lib film # 1254428, NA file #T9-0428, Pg # 273C. Living near them/or with them was also son, Jacob H and family.
    Misc
    • His middle initial of "F", his year of death, and his children were identified clearly in his estate settlement papers, copied from Lincoln Co., KY records.
    Residence 1880  Hustonville, Lincoln, Kentucky, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
    Died 25 Jun 1900  Lincoln Co, KY Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Date taken from picture of headstone; the year 1900 appeared very clear on the stone, August 2006
      Descendent's of Henry Carpenter manuscript said he died prior to 1880; however, he and family were listed in 1880 census. His estate settlement was in 1900, and an LDS IGI site lists his death as 25 Jun 1900, as well.
    Buried Carpenter's Station Cemetary, Lincoln Co., KY Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • A memorial placque onsite, lists him as James T not James F. This is believed to be in error, as the stone was very weathered and the F could easily have been mistaken for a T when the placque was later created.
