Bells - Wayne Co, KY to Hempstead Co., AR

We have been searching forever for any families of Bells that moved from Wayne Co., KY to Hempstead Co., AR. Trying to tear down a brick wall.

William Elisha (He went by Elisha) Bell was born Nov 20, 1828 in Waynew County KY and died in Blevins, Hempstead County, AR. Sept 1 1873. The family story was that he left KY when he was just 16 years old and came to Arkansas. Just wondering if he may have left with some other family members. What happened that he left his home so young, did his parents die or ???

William Elisha Bell married Elizabeth Amelia Burgess in Hempstead Co, AR., in 1860. Elizabeth born 3 Jan 1837, in Williamsburg, SC.


1.Andrew James Bell M 12 Jun 1861
2.William Elisha Bell M 7 Dec 1862 in AR
3.William James Bell M 15 May 1864
4.Mary Jane Bell F 28 Dec 1865 in Hempstead, AR,
5.Jeremiah John Bell M 10 Oct 1868
6.Minto Bell M 23 Jul 1870 in [city], Hempstead, AR,
7.Charles Dennis Bell M 15 Jul 1873

If anyone can shed any light on this line, we would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance! :) Teresa
