RUSSELL, James THE LAST SAD RITES - The funeral services of James Russell was conducted from his fathers residence on Seventh avenue at ten o'clock this morning by Rev. Dr. Walker, pastor of Fifth avenue church. The remarks of Dr. Walker were very impressive and brought tears to the eyes of many of those present. The attendance was exceeding large which shows the high esteem in which the deceased was held while living. The pall bearers were made up of three letter carriers with whom Mr. Russell was associated with for many years, and three soldiers boys who have served in his regiment. The remains were laid to rest garbed in a soldiers uniform, at beautiful Spring Hill cemetery. -The Huntington Advertiser, Thursday Evening, November 17, 1898  Civil War Index
