Nellie Lo Russell was an American No-Maj woman in the early 20th century.[1][2]

Mrs Russell testified during the trial of Mrs Hall for the 14 September 1926 murders of her husband Reverend Hall and Mrs Mills.[1][2] She stated that, on the night of 14 September, Mrs Gibson had visited her, and had also spent time at her own home.[1][2] This seemed to disprove Mrs Gibson's claim to have sighted Mrs Hall in De Russey Lane with a male companion, presumed to have been her accomplice, on the night of the murders.[1][2] However, testimony from George Sipel apparently discredited Mrs Russell's alternate testimony.[1][2] The trial was reported on in the 6 December 1926 issue of the New York Chronicle.[1]
