A. Will BELL family of Conyers, Rockdale GA

I am looking for information on the BELL family of Conyers, Rockdale GA, in particular A. Will BELL.

Last year one of his daughters died at the age of 94, from her obituary:

---

Florence BELL (1914 - 2008) Conyers, Rockdale GA

Florence B. Anderson, age 94 of Conyers, passed away Thursday, August 28, 2008. She was preceded in death by her husband, Cordie Anderson. ... Mrs. Anderson was a retired teacher, a member of Conyers First United Methodist Church and a member of the Maxwell Sunday School Class. Funeral services [were] held Saturday August 30, 2008 at Scot Ward's Harry White Chapel at 11 a.m. with Dr. John Beyers officiating; interment [followed] at Green Meadow Memorial Gardens.

Florence L. BELL was born 26 Oct 1914 (GA) daughter of A. Will BELL b. maybe 1887 - 1888 (GA?)

She married Cordie ANDERSON b. 25 Nov 1904 d. 27 Sep 2003 Conyers, Rockdale GA

She had a sister, Mary A. BELL born 1916 (GA)

Her father married (?) twice.

On the 1930 Conyers, Rockdale GA census A. Will BELL is listed with daughters Florence L. BELL and Mary A. BELL and his second wife, Elizabeth O. BELL who is Elizabeth Ophelia KILGORE b. 16 Nov 1895 Pomona, Spalding GA d. 11 Feb 1978 Atlanta, Fulton GA and their daughter Bettie / Betty Will BELL b. 2 Feb 1927 Griffin, Spalding GA d. 17 Apr 1999 Alpharetta, Fulton GA

If anyone can help fill in any details about A. Will BELL, and Mary A. BELL, it would be appreciated.

In particular, who were his parents? Where were they born? Who was his first wife (the mother of Florence and Mary) and what happened to her? Did he have any siblings? When did he die, and how, and where is he buried? I was told he died ca 1935 but haven't been able to verify this. I am a direct descendant of A. Will BELL.

There is a William A. BELL who was born ca 1888 on the 1900 Newton, GA census, and a William A. BELL born ca 1887 on the 1900 Creek Nation census, but I don't know if they are related, or if they could be this A. Will BELL.

There are numerous BELL family members on the Milton GA (Fulton was Milton until 1932) censuses, who descend from Anderson Smith BELL (1822 - 1910 GA) and Albina / Alvina McNair ROGERS (1830 - 1899 GA) who also may be related.
