I recently obtained information that has Robert Bell (1744) m. Mary Jarvis (1754) in Northampton Co., VA in 1772.

I have been searching for years for Eleazer Bell, (b ?) in Virginia. His first child, Jesse Bell, is recorded as being born in 1801, but the only marriage I have listed is in 1805 to Miss Mary Causey (who was 17 or 18) therefore I think Eleazer was married previously. Eleazer Bell named is middle child WILLIAM JARVIS BELL, (b. 1809) in Effingham Co., GA.

At first, I thought Eleazer might have been married to a "Jarvis", but son Wm. Jarvis Bell is by 2nd wife. I don't think he would have named a child of his 2nd wife after his 1st wife, therefore, my thinking is that Eleazer Bell's mother might have been a "Jarvis".

Robert Bell and Mary Jarvis were married about the right time that they could possibly be his parents.

Does anyone have any information concerning the Jarvis Family and/or Robert Bell that might help me connect to my Eleazer Bell ??? Does anyone have any information on Eleazer Bell at all ???

I will be extremely appreciative for anything you might have.
