Belle Hovey was born in Sogn, Norway, on July 8, 1850. The early years of her life were spent in the land of her birth. At the age of fifteen she came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Hovey, to the United States and the family made their home at Cambridge in this state.
On October 26, 1875, she was united in marriage with Thomas Honeysett at Orfordville. Mrs. and Ms. Honeysett made their home on the old Honeysett farm near Orfordville and continued to live there until the year 1900. On March 1 of that year they took up their residence in this city in the house on the East side now owned by Simon Moats with ten acres of land attached to it. On April 7, 1909, death claimed Mr. Honeysett. The place on which they lived was sold and she bought the home on the East side, where she lived till she died on Monday, August 18, after a long and lingering illness during which she displayed the greatest patience in her suffering until death gave her a happy issue out of all her trouble.
The funeral took place last Thursday afternoon, August 21. Rev. R. Harold Gee made a short prayer at the house. Services were held at the M.E. Church where Rev. R. Harold Gee preached a fitting sermon. The large attendance and profusion of flowers alike attested to the loving hold Mrs. Honeysett had on the hearts of all who knew her. Mrs. H.H. Scott sang, "The End of a Perfect Day", which was peculiarly appropriate to the beautiful Christian life which Mrs. Honeysett had lived. A quartet consisting of Mrs. J.W. Seyforth and Mrs. H.H. Scott and Mrs. Ed Doughty and A. Koepp sang appropriate hymns. The pallbearers – she had selected them herself – were Thomas, Jacob and Myron Lee, Walter and Rex Hovey and Clayton Wulff, her grandnephews. The remains were taken to the Oak Park cemetery, where they found their last earthly resting place by the side of those of her husband.
Mrs. Honeysett is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Martha Silverness of this city and Mrs. Anna Bryngelson of Wisner, Neb. And by one brother E.A. Hovey of Badger, Ia. Mrs. Bryngelson could not come to the funeral but her daughter Belle who has been here for some time with her aunt, was present. E.A. Hovey, on account of his advanced age could not come to the funeral, but he was here a short time ago to see his sister.

Married Thomas Honeysett on October 26, 1875 in Oxfordville, Wisconsin
