Lisette was the daughter of Hiram Belcher and Melinda Parmenter. She married Daniel Russell on May 20, 1860 in Carbondale, PA. They were the parents of Herman, Murray, and Luella.

Nov 9, 1911 - Humboldt Independent - RUSSELL: Lisetta Elizabeth Belcher was born June 12th, 1840, in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, and was united in marriage to Mr. Daniel P. Russell at Carbondale, Pa., May 20th, 1860.

They moved to Wisconsin, remaining there but a short time and from there they came to Humboldt and from there to Springdale in 1865. Here they built a home and here, deceased, with but a short interval intervening, has practically made her home since the date of her arrival here and for all this time her home has been practically continuous upon the block which she died.

To her was born two sons and a daughter: Herman H of Humboldt, owner of the Russell Hotel and Opera House; Murray D who with his family recently became residents of Los Angeles, Ca; and Luella Russell Wilson, wife of H.J. Wilson of Algona.

Mrs Russell died Friday Nov 3, 1911 after a lingering illness made excruciatingly painful from the efforts of an internal cancer of the most malignant nature. Mrs Russell is entitled to a high place among the faithful women and wives of the construction of Humboldt town and county. Uncomplainingly she did her share and often a much larger portion of the labor and oversight than many were willing or able to perform. Hers was the first table at which the writer broke bread after his return from the service in the Union army at the close of the Civil War and her then young family of two bright young boys and the beautiful little girl in the baby crib have from that date been objects of his solicitude and admiration and so he can bid goodbye to the grandmother and faithful wife and widow as to the going forth of one of his own kindred.

The funeral was from the little home provided for her by her faithful sons just north off the Russell House, on Sunday, Nov. 5th at 3 o'clock p.m. with Rev. Henry H.
Burch, pastor of Unity church, officiating. The burial took place in Union Cemetery.
