Whew! You seem to have a lot of similar names floating around -- but if the connections you have made are truly correct -- we have to be talking about a different family than mine. I do have other info about another line in my family history book, too. Please follow carefully....

My information indicates: "MY" Nathaniel Hazen's father was a John Hazen from Massachusetts/Connecticut; Nathaniel Hazen and Mary Bell had a son named Samuel (who is buried beside his first wife -- and at the feet of his father, Nathaniel in Beaver County, PA); Samuel Hazen was the father of a Rebecca Hazen (who is buried beside her second husband in another part of the same cemetery).

Not sure what to think about your picture of Mary Bell. Is the picture a painting or charcoal drawing? If any sort of photograph, I wonder if it may be a different person since Mary Bell died in Dec. 1834 (which may be a bit early for photographs?). Not really sure if 1834 is too early for a photograph. Can anyone help clarify this issue?

My information also indicates that there was yet another Nathaniel Hazen. This Nathaniel Hazen (not mine) was the son of a Samuel Hazen (the same Samuel Hazen who was the father of Rebecca Hazen). Here's where is gets REALLY confusing (and interesting!) "MY" Rebecca Hazen's first husband was William Morton (who I would love to know more about) and so she became Rebecca Hazen Morton. The "other" Nathaniel Hazen(the brother of my Rebecca Hazen) married a Rebecca Morton (the sister of William Morton) - and so, she became Rebecca Morton Hazen. Both Rebecca-s are buried in the same cemetery in Beaver County, PA.

Not sure if I helped or confused you. Please let me know.
