Georgetta was the daughter of George and Mary Jane Messick Bell. She was born a few months after her father died, in battle, while serving with Co. I, 69th Indiana V.I. in Helena, Arkansas. She was named in his honor.

Her mother was left as a widow with many children, but held her family together the best that she could. Some of the children spent short stays in the Indiana Soldiers & Sailors Home at Knightstown. When they were older, Georgetta and her sister, Josephine, were invited to live in the home of their elder brother, David, and his wife.

She married Aaron, the son of Nehemiah and Emeline Smith Bell, on December 5, 1888 in Henry County, Indiana. They moved to Delaware County and raised their children in Muncie. The couple were the parents of Mabel Clare, Howard Elmer, Lavere Jane, Charles Donald, Harry Fred and Ralph A. Bell.
