Searching for date of death and location for Cornelia Elizabeth CAMPBELL CRAIN RUSSELL b.1854 in Perry Co., IL and moved to Eltopia, Franklin Co.,WA in early 1920's, following youngest son's family: Joseph Warren RUSSELL b.

Joseph and Pernie and children moved to Eltopia/Pasco WA in 1911. He used to work for Illinois Central R.R. He died in 1945 and Pernie in 1982. I have extensive research to share on CRAINs, CAMPBELLs, and their ancestors with any RUSSELL descendants also and would like more info. on Cornelia's second husband (Joseph's father) William RUSSELL. Thanks for any help. Welcome e-mail replies also. Marjorie

Hello. Do you have any information on Fern Crain? My name is Dale Jones, I live in Eltopia, & am researching the early townspeople and the history of the house I live in. Eltopia was platted in 1902 & I believe Fern Crain first owned the lots my house is built on. The house was built by Darby (his first name escapes me at the moment) about 1909. I am not sure if Fern Crain had the house built, or if he had sold the lots and a Mr.Brennaman (he was the town banker) built the house. My father, who is no longer living bought the house in 1950 from the Phends. I am trying to restore this house, and would like ANY information I could get. Thanks, Dale Jones

P.S. My dad knew all the people listed in your quiry, I wish he was around so I could be of some help to you.
