Healdsburg Bell 2 families 1 Henry Bell other children of Samuel Bell HelpSort

Healdsburg, Ca has two groups of Bell that appear to be unrelated. Anyone want to confirm they are separate families or help link them.
The children of Samuel Bell (1797) and Margaret Vaughan (1808- 1890) included James Shaduck Bell (1834-1896) and George Kimsey Bell born 1836 Sni A Bar Jackson, MO. Also William Thomas Bell born 1831 Simpson Kentucky who dies 1915 and is a wagon train captain of over 300 persons and may have made several trips. This group of Bell marries into the Ferguson surname and probably has family buried at Oak Mound Cemetery. They would have been aquainted with my Bradford family because we purchased property from Margaret's relative William J. Vaughan. I believe Samuel's family originates from the North Carolina area while Margaret's family is from Virginia but I need to recheck this. A remarkable number of people in Healdsburg have ties back to North Carolina.
The second family may be found in regard to a Bradford Bell born 1842 Leyden, Lewis, NY son of Henry Bell born 1824 Leyden, Lewis, NY son of Henry Bell. This family resides near Healdsburg, Ca and in windsor, CA. They also appear to marry Ferguson but apparently a different group of Ferguson's than above. They are also probably buried at Oak Mound Cemetery. This group resided within 5 miles of my Bradford family in NY and named a child Bradford. My Bradford family also came to reside in Healdsburg, CA.
Both sets of Bell are early settlers in the area.
