Helen Louisa Covell was born on March 7, 1830, in Carroll, Chautauqua County, New York, the second of eleven children of John and Serena (Rice) Covell. She used the name Louisa throughout her life. She died at age 60 on May 21, 1890, in the village of Cameron, Barron County, Wisconsin. She is buried in Wayside Cemetery in the city of Barron, Wisconsin. Her cemetery plot is next to that of her brother-in-law, Alonzo J. Barton, where it was intended that her sister, Lucy Jane (Covell) Barton, also would be buried.

Louisa married Daniel J. Forbush on May 23, 1847, at the village of Frewsburg, Chautauqua County, New York. Daniel was born in Massachusetts on March 31, 1828, the son of Luther and Serena (Masters) Forbush, both of Massachusetts. Daniel died in Barron, Wisconsin, at the age of 77 years on August 16, 1905. He is buried next to his wife, Louisa, in Wayside Cemetery in Barron. He was a carpenter. They had one child, daughter Serena Eliza Forbush. Louisa and her husband lived in Carroll, Chautauqua County, New York, where he was a farmer at least through 1880, and the family moved to Barron County, Wisconsin, in the 1880's.

Louisa and Daniel grew up together. In 1829, when Daniel was one year-old, and when Louisa would be born the following year, the John Covell and Luther Forbush families lived on Lot 42 in Township 1, Range 10, i.e., the Town of Carroll. A Lot is 360 acres, but Lot 42 was larger to account for the terrain, but nevertheless, the two families were close together.
