Biographical Details:

Eliza Russell was born, along with her twin brother, Edward, on September 5, 1859, in Bourbon County in the Kansas Territory.  She settled with her family in Gentry County, Missouri, about 1870 and, subsequently, became a charter member of the Island City Christian Church.  Arch C. Daugherty and Eliza Russell were married on January 30, 1881, probably in Gentry County.  There is some uncertainty as to his first name, but it is believed to have been "Archer", although a less likely alternative is "Archibald".  In any case, he seems to have been known throughout his life simply as "Arch".   Moreover, it appears that Arch and Eliza remained in Gentry County at least until after 1900 since the population schedule of the census of that year indicates that they were then living in Jackson Township near Island City.  This supported by a plat map of Gentry County published in 1896, which indicates that A. C. Daugherty owned a farm of sixty acres southeast of the village of Island City.1  Nevertheless, by 1910 they evidently had migrated westward and were living in the town of Grangeville, Idaho, with their older son, Jesse, who apparently died unmarried in 1915.  Their younger son, Orville, married in Missouri in 1909 and remained behind; however, by 1918, he and his family also had moved to Idaho.  Within this context, both the households of Arch C. Daugherty and Orville L. Daugherty appeared on the same page of the population schedule of the 1920 US Census for Nez Perce County, Idaho, and, thus, were evidently then living in close proximity in Chesley Precinct.  Eliza Russell Daugherty died in Lewiston, Idaho, on May 6, 1929.  Subsequent biographical details are quite sparse; however, census records indicate that in 1930, Arch Daugherty was living in the household of his son, Orville, in the village of Endicott in Whitman County, Washington.  At this time, Orville's occupation was indicated as "drug clerk" working in a drug store and, likewise, in 1940 he was identified as a "druggist"..  Accordingly, it is probable that Arch lived with his son's family after Eliza's death, since he is known to have died in Washington in 1933.  Eliza and Arch Daugherty are buried together in Reubens Cemetery near the village of Reubens in Lewis County, Idaho.
