Mittie Franklin Bell committed suicide by drowning on 15 Apr 1893 in the New Church area. I feel sure that there was some kind of newspaper article about her death. Can anyone look this up for me? What I am most interested in is if they talk about her father, Phillip C. Franklin, and stepmother, Roscinda Carpenter Franklin, and if they are still living. I can trace Phillip and Roscinda to Stockton, Worcester, MD but then I can't find them. I know Mittie and her husband Seth Bell lived in Accomack County.
