I don't know anything about this family but here's what I found.

The age is right for the Ruby 15 in 1910 census.

Note the places of birth for her parents in this census.
1920 Mountain Home, Baxter, Arkansas
Liston Russell 28 AR AR AR
Ruby Russell 25 AR GA AR

1900 Mill, Baxter, Arkansas (he's listed as widow)
Dovly B. Cox 39 GA

SOOOOOOO who are the kids in 1910 census??

Marion County marriages
