There are several Pell's listed in the pre 1907 death index on line at http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/vitalrecords
Mary's death is listed there.

Check those out to see if anything would help you out. I can view them at the courthouse.

History of 1882 says: Ira A. Pell came in 1842, and settled on Section 15 near the lake which now bears his name. He died in 1870 (I thought it said 71). HIs widow and two sons still live on the claim.

History of 1912 says:

Ira A. Pell (1800-1871), namesake of the lakelet in section 15, married Mary L. (1816-1883), daughter of Ephraim and Alida Farmer.

Both are listed in the section about Bloomfield Townships.
