Seeking parents and siblings of JAMES BELL (listed variously as JAMES A. BELL and JAMES BEALL), a resident of Nelson Co from the 1850s. JAMES was born in 1816 in Washington/Marion Co, of parents from that area. He married (1) Cordelia Burch in 1849 and (2) Susan Elizabeth Wortham (Rogers) Ross in 1865. THOMAS BELL was witness at second marriage--perhaps a relation? There were 5 children from the first marriage and 5 or 6 from the second.

Does anyone find JAMES in family, Bible, or church records of the time that might identify him as part of this pioneer family? Will share info on descendants. John
