JAMES N. RUSSELL was born July 8, 1854, in the western part of Allen
County, Ky. His father, Gregory Russell, was born February 19, 1818,
also in Allen County. He was a son of Seth Russell, of Virginia.
Gregory Russell was married, about 1840, to Nancy, daughter of James
Horn, of Simpson County. From their union sprang Melissa (Guy), King M.
and James N., who was married February 25, 1875, to Enola, daughter of
James and M. E. (Ferguson) Gaines, of Simpson County. To them have been
born Zula, Daisy, Nannie B. and Arthur, all but the latter of whom are
dead. Mr. Russell owes his success to his own efforts. He commenced
life with nothing; first as a teacher, then as a farmer; now is both a
farmer and superintendent of his milling business. He has been deputy
assessor of Allen County, and in politics is a Democrat.
