General: I have never been able to find Wm. H. or his parents in the 1880 Texas
census, leading me to believe his father may have died and his mother remarried,
or, both parents died and he was raised by a different family.  The following census
info may be a possibility?

1880  BELL CO TX  Census 
RUSSEL, John A.  head     W  M  22   farmer               TX  MO  TN
RUSSEL, Emma A.  wife    W  F   24   keeping house   AL*  AL  AL
BROWN,  Wm. H.   stepson   W  M  7                         TX  TX  AL*
ROSS,      Wm.                     B  M   20   laborer           AR  __  __

31 Oct 2002, reply email from MB, she has found a marriage record for me.
John A. RUSSELL and E.B.S. BROWN 23 Jul 1878 in Milam Co, TX.
A note adds that the wife had been previously married.  COULD THIS BE EMMA
SPEARS-BROWN and my William Henry?  His death certificate indicated his parents
were both born in TX - is the above birth state info for Emma in error or could
the family have "forgotten" where she was born?
WorldConnect has the above census John A. Russell as the son of Barney Russell,
grandson of Alexander Russell (Burnet Co TX Russells)  WorldConnect file indicates
the wife of John A. Russell was Emma Lee Speirs

Found him and family in 1920 COMAL Co TX census.  I had been looking in NM for
him as I remembered Dad saying that his family left TX for NM when he was 2 mo.
old.  I must have misunderstood, he must have meant 2 years old.

Melissa Ann is married and living in Maricopa Co.  Billie is not listed, but I
can't find her and husband Jess anywhere if they are married by this early in
the year.  Mary K. has died in 1928.
Certified copy of William and Lola's marriage certificate.  Married Comal Co,
TX 27 Sep 1906   (thanks to WQ lookup info)

AZ Archives cannot locate an obituary for William Henry Brown.

AZ Death Cert. photocopy from AZ Archives
Gives date of birth and place only as Texas. Actual location of death is Gila
Co. Hospital, Globe, Gila Co.; person giving info is Lola B. Brown, wife.  Trade
is listed as carpenter. Cause of death "Paralysis of larynx and muscles of
"deglutition"?, onset July 1938.  Names of parents listed as George Brown and
Emma Spears.  Place of birth for each listed as TX.
His death certificate gives his birth date as 6 Jan 1875.  I think he may have
been born in 1873:  a) His age in the 1910 and 1920 census indicates an earlier
birth than 1875  b)  He and Lola were married in Sep 1906 and the 1930 census
states he was married at age 33.  Those three items indicate a birth year
earlier than 1875.
I never saw William Henry, but my mother, Helen Campbell-Brown said he was well
over 6 ft. in height, perhaps 6' 4-5".
General: TXDI = Lola Bell Wilkins, 23 Jul 1964, Williamson Co.
TX death certificate = acute myelocytic leukemia
Obituary, published in American Statesman, Austin, Travis Co, TX
Oak Hill Cem = picture of funeral home marker, no headstone.
Oak Hill Cem index online did not list her, I contacted the man who did the
survey for GenWeb and he sent the info in to be included.
I have her maternal line very well documented.
