John Russell was a twin brother of Henry "James" Russell who died in 1886. His father, John Russell (1839-1889) died when the family was quite young, and John's mother, Sarah Stacy (Lovering) Russell, remarried for a short while, during which time the family left Pocahontas County, Iowa, and moved to Louisa County, Iowa.

The other children of the family, besides John and his twin, were: Arthur George Russell (1874-1962), William Russell (1877-1952), Elijah Russell (1879-1925), Albert Russell (ca. 1884 - 1886), Mary Frances (Russell) Maddux (1886-1966), and a daughter who died in infancy.

John married Flossie Walker in 1903. They had no children of their own, but raised a cousin of John's as a foster son, Byron Robert Ernst (1898-1975).
