Both died of black lung according to family, he was a coal miner and she supposedly died from same thing he did by washing clothes for him, I wonder if she didn't wash clothes for others also. They spent time in Oklahoma mining as well as Arkansas. They may have died of lead poisoning instead of black lung, maybe?

George Russell, a single male, stated as aged 22 and born in Arkansas in August 1877, is shown in the 1900 census for Coal Hill, Johnson County, Arkansas as a farm laborer living in the family of John Roberts, age 50.  John Roberts' family in the same census entry includes his daughter Rosa, age 19, born in 1881, also single.


The marriage of G.W. Russell of Coal Hill, age 25, and Rosie Roberts of Coal Hill, age 19, was performed on November 29, 1900 by N.M. Kelly and recorded in the marriage books of Johnson County, Arkansas on December 1, 1900.
