The person that you are referring to as "Gideon, Guilard, Garland, etc" is actually Gilford E. Bell. Gilford E. Bell is my g-g-g grandfather. You will find him in the Stewart County census beginning in 1870 (I think). That G. E. Bell that is listed in the Webster Confederate Guards as a 4th sergeant is also the same Gilford E. Bell. His brother-in-law is also listed in the same regiment.....William O. Crymes. (Gilford married Louisa Crymes...William's sister). Gilford and Louisa (called Lula) had three sons and one daughter...Oscar, James, Charley Eugene (my g-g grandfather), and daughter Carrie who died young. I have photographs of these people if you are interested. Would you be willing to share with me the info you have on Fred Bell being appointed limited guardian of Guilford Bell in 1857 after the death of Hiram Bell? I have not seen that info and would love to have it.
