Biography

Russell Lee Sanders was born on 12 August 1901 in Pawnee, Sangamon, Illinois to Thomas Elijah Sanders and Sarah Jane Frances Jenkins and was raised around grain farms.

He married Mary Barbara Schust on 26 August 1925 (presumably in Pawnee) and had three children with her. They moved to Parma, Monroe, New York between 1936 and 1938 and originally lived and worked on the Gioia farm on Curtis Road before moving to the Bulger farm on Manitou Road in 1942-1943, where they worked as sharecroppers.

Russell passed away in his sleep on 26 January 1973 in Parma and was buried in Parma Union Cemetery.
