Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

INTRODUCTORY 



For the purpose of collecting and preparing a History 
and Genealogy of the different families who are de- 
scendants of Lancelot Bell, a committee was appointed 
at a meeting held during one of the Bell Family reunions 
about three years ago. Since that time, they have been 
collecting material for publication in book form. 

Owing to the various ways of receiving information, 
some of which is gained by hearsay and by memory, 
there necessarily will be some mistakes. The reader 
will please bear in mind that some errors are quite una- 
voidable. 

The committee wishes to thank all who, in any way, 
assisted in the preparation of this book. 

Richmond, Indiana, 1907.

HISTORICAL 

As the descendants of the Bell family are passing 
away one by one, it seems evident to some of those 
now living that ere long the knowledge of our an- 
cestors would be quite, if not entirely extinct, and as 
the present generation passes away and future gener- 
ations come on the field of action, it becomes our duty 
to leave behind us some record of our ancestors and 
their descendants. And the thought was made mani- 
fest to some, and the suggestion was made of hold- 
ing a Bell Family Reunion, which took place on Au- 
gust 2, 1890, at the residence of John C. Morris, one 
and a half miles southeast of Dublin. 

After a bountiful repast, in the way of a picnic 
dinner, the company was called to order and Jesse 
Bell was chosen chairman and Abbie Gilbert secre- 
tary. Jesse Henby delivered the address of welcome. 
Letters from absent ones were read. Remarks were 
made in regard to the history and character of the 
Bell Family. Several from a distance were with us. 
The following paper was read by Josephine Parker: 

"One hundred and twenty years ago, five hundred 
miles from here, beneath the sunny sky of Carolina, 
a baby boy with sweet blue eyes lay nestling in his 
mother's arms. As the little baby face lay smiling 
to the angels in its dreams, and sweetly cooing to its 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 77 

mother in its waking moments, she stopped a moment 
the humming of her spinning wheel and stooped to 
^ kiss her darling, silently asking God 'to bless her 
child.' 

**They called him John, and he grew in his happy 
southern home, the son of Lancelot and Miriam Bell. 

"Twenty-one years passed, and on the thirtieth of 
Twelfth month, the manly form of John, with a 
blushing maiden on his arm, walked up the aisle of 
the little Quaker meeting house and quietly sat down. 

"A half hour they waited, then rising and taking 
each other by the hand, John Bell and Sarah Bundy 
calmly repeated the pretty marriage ceremony of our 
church. The certificate was read and signed, and two 
more lives were blended, two more hearts must beat 
as one. 

"Time flew on in the home of John and his happy 
wife until fifteen years were gone. Seven times 
the Angel of Life had stepped within their threshold, 
bearing to them a cherub from the skies with their 
Heavenly Father's message, 'Take it and raise it for 
me/ 

"Upon the hearthstone in front of the old-fashioned 
fire-place, where blazed and crackled the huge pine 
knots, the three brothers and four sisters played, 
making shadows on the wall, making pictures in the 
coals, cracking nuts and popping corn, in all the joy- 
ousness of innocent childhood. 

"Seventeen years of happy wedded life had passed, 
when again an angel passed beside their door, and as 
the latch lifted and the door opened, the Angel of 
Death instead of Life came in. 



78 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

"Gently He took the wife, the mother, and bore her 
away to her beautiful home beyond the skies, and in 
the month of June, the lovely Month of Roses, they 
laid her lifeless form to rest until the glorious resur- 
rection mom. 

"Three years passed and God gave our grandfather 
another wife, his children another mother, in Lydia, 
the fair, blue-eyed daughter of Jesse and Sarah Sy- 
mons, and these were married the nineteenth of 
Second month', eighteen hundred and nine. 

"Eight years passed by, during which three little 
girls and one little boy came to multiply the joy and 
happiness of their home. The oldest of whom, Mar- 
garet (Aunt Peggy is the name we love her by), and 
the youngest, Lydia, my own dear mother, God has 
spared to us until today, and sweet Aunt Abbie who 
left us only two years ago, and Uncle Jesse who went 
long before. 

"In eighteen hundred and seventeen they, with 
their eleven children, ranging in age from twenty- 
seven to one year, and none of them married, left the 
old home in Carolina with all its dear associations, 
to find a new home in the North. 

"Coming through in a train, certainly with special 
coaches chartered for the trip, dining car and all, 
with grandfather as general manager, the oldest boys 
as engineers and firemen. Uncle Josiah to carry 
Lydia up the mountain side and grandmother as head- 
quarters for counsel in everything, with five-year-old 
Jesse the most knowing one of all. Baby grew heavy 
for even the strong arms of her twenty-year-old 
brother, and sitting down to rest a moment, he picked

up this comb and gave it to the baby who has had it 
for the past seventy-three years. 

"Safely the family made the trip, reached their 
station, one mile south of Cambridge City, landed 
in the green woods, entered one hundred and sixty 
acres of land, and made them there a home where 
they lived until grandfather's death, twenty-two years 
afterwards. 

"Another little girl, our dear Aunt Martha, came 
to make the even dozen children; and as the years 
went by God blessed and prospered our grandfather 
and his family and gave them all companions and 
children and homes of their own." 

The following account of the first Bell Family Re- 
union was published by the Palladium: 

"The Bell Family reunion, held at Sulphur Springs, 
south of Dublin, on Saturday last, August 2, was one 
of the most pleasant and interesting gatherings of 
this character ever held in this section of country, of 
which a brief sketch is given: 

"John Bell, a tailor by trade, was bom in North 
Carolina, 1768. He was of strict Quaker parentage 
and the Quaker faith and practices have been handed 
down through his descendants with a degree char- 
acteristic to that people. In 1817 he, with his eleven 
children — ^the oldest 27 years of age, the youngest a 
baby — moved to Wayne county and settled on the 
farm, between Cambridge City and Milton, now oc- 
cupied by John Calliway. 

"The twelfth child was bom after their arrival here. 
It is but natural to suppose that descendants of this 
family of twelve children should by this time become 
numerous and consequently have scattered far and 
near. But two of the twelve children mentioned are

living — Mrs. Lydia B. Macy, of Walnut Ridge, Rush 
county, and Mrs. Margaret Gilbert, of Hopewell, the 
former seventy-four and the latter eighty years old, 
both of whom were present and added much interest 
to the occasion. 

"The Sulphur Springs as mentioned is on the farm 
that Josiah Bell, one of the children, entered in 1820, 
he dying a few years ago at the age of eighty-seven, 
having lived on this farm all his married life. These 
Springs are just across the road from where the re^ 
union was held. 

"The gathering on Saturday last, was of more than 
usual interest for such an occasion, being the first of 
the kind. 

"Friends and relatives met here that had not seen 
each other for years. Here, too, mingled some three 
or four generations of this family, a sight seldom wit- 
nessed, and which was intensely of thought and re- 
flection. On assembling, congratulations after con- 
gratulations were in order, which extended to near 
the noon hour, when a table some fifty or sixty feet 
long was spread with one of the most well prepared 
and sumptuous dinners that the most choice could 
wish or want. Before partaking of this rich feast, 
Abram Symonds, of Farmland, evoked the throne of 
grace in a manner that awakened a degree of grati- 
tude in every soul present. Hardly half of the dinner 
was eaten, so plentifully was it furnished. After the 
dishes and cloth were removed, Jesse Bell, of Spice- 
land, acted as president, and Abbie Gilbert as sec- 
retary. A program had been prepared which was 
now presented and rendered with the highest degree 
of interest, to the large number, over one hundred 
who stood open eyes and ears to catch everything said 
and done. First a short address of welcome by Jesse 
Henby, responded to by Mrs. Lydia Macy, after which 
a history of the marriage and brief events of the life 
of John Bell was read by Mrs. Josie Parker, of Carth-

age. We cannot speak in too high praise of this 
paper; the manner in which it was prepared and the 
fluent and tender style in which it was read, eHcited 
the praise and admiration of all who heard it, giving 
as it did so important a sketch of his marriage and 
statistics of his family posterity. 

"Some incidents of his family were also given by 
Thomas N. White, of Richsquare. Mrs. L)rdia B. 
Macy, one of the daughters, spoke in a feeling and 
pathetic way of the incidents of her early life, and 
what she knew of her father's family. Some poems 
were read by Dora Knight, that had been written 
and collected by some one or other of the family. 
Letters were then read by the secretary from friends 
from a distance who could not be present but sent 
their congratulations. The program concluded by 
repeating the 100th Psalm by some six or eight great 
grandchildren, after which different ones from the 
company were called to say something fitting for the 
occasion, a number responded, all referring to the sin- 
cere Christian spirit found to have existed and running 
through the early parentages of the Bell family; and 
taking it all in all, the occasion was not only of the 
highest interest in a passing way, but equally import- 
ant in again calling together those whom time and 
space have long separated. 

"Among those who were present from a distance 
we may mention: William Parker and wife, from 
southern Iowa; William A. Schofield and wife, from 
north of Indianapolis; Mordecai Parry, Minneapolis, 
Minnesota; Abram Symonds, Farmland; Thomas 
Morris and wife, Eli Morris and wife and daughters, 
from Richmond, Indiana, while Spiceland, Richsquare 
and Hopewell, in Henry county, were well repre- 
sented, with others from Walnut Ridge and Carthage, 
Rush county. Some relics were shown that have been 
handed down through the family from early times, 
among which was a case-knife box made of pine wood.

brought with them from Carolina in 1817, a powder 
horn and mortar; also a tailor's goose and shears, 
which came from England over a hundred years ago ; 
a pocket comb, yet in the possession of Mrs. Lydia 
B. Macy, that has its history, which is contained in 
the paper read by Mrs. Josie Parker. Other relics 
of interest were shown, and taken altogether the time 
and occasion will be well and long remembered.

August 6, 1891. 

The second annual Reunion of the Bell Family 
met on the grounds of John C. Morris with a good 
attendance of about eighty. After the greeting of 
relatives and friends, the company partook of a boun- 
tiful dinner, after which the company as a whole 
gathered in one place and their pictures were taken 
in a group, with Aunt Margaret Gilbert and Sarah 
Frampton, the eldest representatives, in the center. 
Afterwards Luther Symons called to order, and Abram 
Symons opened the meeting with prayer, giving 
thanks and praise to our Heavenly Father for His 
bountiful goodness that we have been so permitted to 
meet together as one family. Maria Symons was 
chosen secretary. A letter was read from Michael 
Stanley giving quite a record of a portion of the Bell 
Family. 

Several relics were presented for our inspection, 
one of which was a bowl, in the possession of Sarah 
Frampton, and was originally owned by Lancelot Bell, 
the ancestor of the Bell Family 200 years ago, who 
was a shipbuilder, and on this bowl were pictures of 
ships, etc., representing one country joining hands

with another; also a log book, in which he kept his 
accounts of trade, etc. 

Remarks were made by several. We were favored 
with some songs by John Parker. It was thought 
best to have a more permanent organization that we 
might be enabled to keep the record of the transactions 
of these meetings, as we are making history for 
generations to come. John Gilbert was chosen presi- 
dent, Albert Johnson vice-president, and Eliza W. 
Morris secretary, these three to constitute the execu- 
tive committee, they to formulate the exercises for 
our next meeting and decide on a permanent time. 
Then adjourned to meet at same place. 

Eliza W. Morris^ Secretary. 



August 9, 1892. 
The third annual Reunion of the Bell Family met 
according to adjournment. The president, J. J. Gil- 
bert, called to order. Minutes of last meeting read 
and accepted; also the report of the executive com- 
mittee, fixing the permanent time for meeting the 
third Tuesday in August of each year. Lydia Miles 
opened the meeting with prayer. John Gilbert read 
a paper on the history of John Bell, who was one of 
five men to locate the boundary of Henry County. A 
water can was shown as a relic in the hands of 
Gulielma Henby. The can is of wood and the shape 
of a large pitcher, used by Abigail Charles to carry 
water from the springs of Glen Miller on the morning 
of her marriage. 



84 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

The will of John Bell, setting apart such posses- 
sions to each of his twelve children, was read by Abby 
Gilbert. 

A song, entitled "Beautiful Days," was rendered 
by Dora Gilbert and others. A letter of greeting from 
Josie Parker, also one from Lucinda Coggeshall, giv- 
ing a record of her ancestors. 

Martha Coffin made some remarks very appropri- 
ate for the occasion, spoke of the blessing of meeting 
together, she believed it was good to leave the busy 
cares of life and thus mingle in social intercourse. 
Abram Symons spoke of our meeting in honor of our 
ancestors who were worthy examples for us to follow. 
Lydia Miles referred to the blessed reunion of the 
one family in the home beyond. 

Charles Hood expressed the thought that these 
meetings would be a great blessing to us all, to bind 
us closer here and hereafter. Mordecai Morris said 
he was glad to be here, he had met with friends that 
he had not seen for forty years. Relics were shown: 
a large gourd, a knife box, homespun towels, powder 
horn, etc. 

The names of those that were connected in the 
Bell family that have joined the silent majority be- 
yond the river were: Jesse Gilbert, July 31; Morde- 
cai Parry, July 31 ; David Herbst, April 9. 

The officers appointed last year were continued 
for another year. The following papers were read, 
the first one giving a history of the Bell ancestors. 

Eliza W. Morris, Secretary,

A Paper by John J. Gilbert. 

Let us lode back for 150 years to the time when 
our ancestor, Lancelot Bell, left his home in England 
and settled in this country. From that time we have 
a partial record of the family of Lancelot Bell and 
Miriam, his wife. He was a shipbuilder by trade, and 
left a ledger of his business transactions from 1770 to 
1781. 

From this ledger, which is now the property of 
Enos Bell, we learn that he was a good business man 
and kept a strict account of everything. Their home 
was in Pasquotank County, North Carolina. Here 
they raised seven children, two boys and five girls. 
The first son, Thomas, died about the age of nineteen. 
We have but little record of the daughters. 
• The second son, around whom clings the most in- 
terest to us, was bom Seventh month 6, 1768. His 
father died when he was about thirteen years old. He 
must have been an industrious boy, for we see from 
his guardian's ledger that he was very little expense. 
From 1781 to 1788 his guardian bought for him only 
the following articles : 

One pair stockings, 5 shillings. 

One quire paper, 10 shillings. 

One hat, 8 shillings. 

Two pair shoes, 18 shillings. 

Two months' schooling, 7 shillings 6 d. 

In 1789 he was of age, and in the same year mar- 
ried Sarah Bundy. Sarah died in 1806, leaving him 
with seven children — Lancelot, Mary, Miriam, Josiah, 
Sarah, Thomas and Rebecca. 



86 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

In 1809 he married again, this time to Lydia Sy- 
mons. They had one son and four daughters — Mar- 
garet, Jesse, Abigail, Lydia and Martha, all were bom 
in Carolina except Martha, the youngest. In 1817 
they moved from Carolina to Indiana and settled in 
this county. We see from the history of Henry 
County that John Bell was one of five men to locate 
the county seat of Henry County in 1821. He died 
in 1839, aged 72 years, was buried at Milford near 
Milton, Wayne County. In personal appearance 
grandfather was tall and slim. He was a tailor and 
a farmer. J. J. Gilbert. 



August IS, 1893. 

The fourth annual Reunion of the Bell Family 
met according to adjournment at the residence of 
John C. Morris. The attendance was good, near one 
hundred being present. Some who had been with us 
heretofore were prevented by sickness or other 
causes, others met for the first time. As friends ar- 
rived, the time was spent in social greeting until the 
noon hour, when all gathered around a bountiful din- 
ner. Before partaking of the repast, a blessing was 
asked by one of the number upon those assembled. 

At 2 p. m. the company was called to order by 
the president, John J. Gilbert. Devotional exercise 
was led by Abram Symons, invoicing the Divine bless- 
ing on those gathered, realizing that we are, as one 
family, endeavoring to so live that we honor the 
memory of our ancestors. An original dialogue 
written by Belinda Macy, was given by several chil- 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 87 

dren representing the manners and customs of early 
days. A paper by Ellen Clark as follows: 

A History of the Water Can and Knife Box. 

Of the first history of this water can I know noth- 
ing. It may have been brought from England by 
early settlers, but this is doubtful, as such cans were 
in common use at the time in North Carolina, from 
whence it came in the early spring of 1812, so it is 
almost if not quite a centenarian. It was brought to 
Indiana with other household utensils of that day as 
the property of Samuel and Gulielma Charles who, 
after that long, arduous journey of over seven hun- 
dred miles, settled on the beautiful spot now known 
as Glen Miller, but which was then an unbroken 
wilderness. This was before the city of Richmond 
had been platted. One of the many springs must have 
been the first attraction to the weary traveler, and I 
imagine that none other than my own dear grand- 
mother — to whom this can afterwards fell as an heir- 
loom — ^was the first sent, to bring it filled from the 
spring, as she was then a sprightly girl of eleven. 

It must have been in constant use after this, and 
the little girl Abigail had grown into a modest maiden 
of twenty, who had been wooed and won by Josiah 
Bell, a pure and true young man from the western 
part of the county. 

On the morning of the wedding day, as Josiah 
was going to her father's home to escort her to the 
meeting house, where the marriage was to be solemn- 
ized according to the custom of Friends, he met her 



88 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

going from the spring carrying this can filled, upon 
her head, she no doubt seemed bewitching to him 
and it was a scene in his memory ever after loved to 
dwell upon. 

I am told that the can did not accompany the newly 
wedded pair to the little cabin which by the spring 
had been prepared for them in the field beyond, but 
that years afterwards it was given my grandfather, 
who particularly wished it for the memories and as- 
sociations connected with it. 

August 21, 1894. 

The fifth annual Reunion of the Bell Family met 
according to adjournment at the home of John C. 
Morris. 

The social greeting of relatives and friends, some 
perhaps only meeting at these stated times, about one 
hundred had gathered when the time arrived for the 
dinner. Thomas N. White asked the blessing on all 
assembled, and every one was able to partake freely 
of the good things before us. There was plenty left, 
perhaps for as many more. 

About two o'clock the president, John J. Gilbert, 
called to order, and opened the exercises by a quar- 
tet, consisting of the members of the Reunion, singing 
"Beautiful Days," after which Abram Symons ap- 
peared in prayer with thanks unto our Heavenly 
Father for our past and present blessings and that 
we may all be led and guided aright and emulate the 
examples of our forefathers. The minutes of the last 
meeting were read and approved. The reading of 
letters from absent ones was next in order — one letter 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 89 

from Martha CofBn, of El Modena, California, that 
had been omitted last year, also one written for the 
present meeting, giving a description of the old home 
of John Bell. A letter from Gulielma Henby, giving 
a sketch of Grandmother Bell (Sarah Symons Bell). 
A paper on the life of Lancelot Bell was read by Eli 
Morris. One of his descendants, a grandchild, 
Charles Frampton, and wife, from Markleville, Indi- 
ana, were present. Recitations by Ina Herbst, a 
song by the quartet. Representatives from each of 
the twelve children, with one exception, were present. 
Each gave a short account of their respective line of 
generation. A paper on the life of Mary Bell, by 
Elva Mills, also a talk by Lydia White on Miriam 
Bell, with tender recollection and praise of • those who 
have gone before and that their influence lives after 
them. Information of the death of those of our mem- 
bers who have gone from works to reward: Sarah 
Frampton, died Eleventh month 12, 1893; descend- 
ant of Lancelot Bell, son of John. Charles Parry, 
died Third month 20, 1894; son of Sarah, who was 
the daughter of Thomas, son of John. Josephine 
Parker, died Fifth month 1, 1894; daughter of Lydia 
Macy, who was the daughter of John Bell. 

Remarks were made by Thomas White and wife, 
George Nicholson, John J. Gilbert, William Butler, 
Sarah A. Gilbert and Amos Horner, each expressive 
of the good influence of those of the past, as moral 
and religious lives were characteristics of the Bell 
family, which was encouragement for those present 
to live noble lives and live them well. The appoint- 
ment for papers for the next four of the twelve chil- 



go Genealogy of the Bell Family 

dren of John and Sarah Bell : Jesse Henby to prepare 
a paper on Josiah Bell; Lydia Morris for Sarah Bell 
(Morris); Jesse Bell for Thomas Bell; Abram Sy- 
mons and Clara Herbst for Rebecca Bell (Symons). 
Then followed the election of officers. Charles Framp- 
ton was chosen president, Josiah Johnson vice- 
president, Eliza W. Morris re-elected secretary. 

A vote of thanks was given for Martha Coffin for 
her most interesting letter and the secretary directed 
to inform her. 

Among the relics was a looking glass that had be- 
longed to Sarah Bundy, who died in 1827, also a book 
in the old-fashioned style of letters printed in 1726. 

Then adjourned to meet in John C. Morris' yard 
on the third Tuesday in August, singing "Grod be with 
you till we meet again." 



A Paper on the Life of Lancelot Bell. 

Lancelot Bell, the eldest child of John Bell and 
Sarah Bundy, was bom Eleventh month 31, 1790, in 
Pasquatank County, North Carolina. 

He lived with his parents until their removal to 
Guilford County, same State, about the year 1810. 
About the year 1814 he drove a wagon loaded with 
whetstones from Deep River to the head of navigation 
of the Kanawa River. Soon after his return he came 
to Indiana, then a territory, and was there more than a 
year when he returned to Guilford. 

In the year 1817, in company with his parents, 
brothers and sisters, he came to Indiana, then a State. 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 91 

They settled one mile south of Cambridge City, on 
the farm now known as the Callaway farm. 

On the 16th of Twelfth month, 1818, he was mar- 
ried to Mary, daughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth 
Justice, and settled near Milton for some time, and 
about four miles west of Bentonville, from there to 
Dublin. He then removed to the farm in Henry 
County and lived there until his death, which oc- 
curred Tenth month 9, 1875. His wife, Mary, died 
Eighth month 8, 1837. They had six children. 

Their daughter, Sarah Frampton, was the only 
one of their children that was married. Her children, 
eight of whom are living, seven grandchildren, are 
all of the descendants living of Lancelot Bell. He 
was buried in Friends burying ground at Dublin. His 
daughter, Sarah, at Pendleton, Indiana, and son, 
David, at San Antonia, Texas. Lancelot Bell's life 
was not of startling incidents, but a life we might 
truly say was a living exemplification of the Golden 
Rule. Of the sincerity of his religious convictions 
no one can doubt. His two greatest pleasures seemed 
to be his Bible and his meeting, the attendance of 
which he faithfully performed long after his physical 
condition rendered it unsafe. He dressed extremely 
plain, having no desire for show. A peculiarity might 
be mentioned of keeping his hat on all the time, except 
when eating. He never traveled in the cars, pre- 
ferring to go in his open buggy.

92 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

The sixth annual meeting of the Bell Family was 
held at the home of John C. Morris, August 20, 1895. 
Nearly one hundred relatives had gathered by the 
hour of noon. A beautiful table was spread, and 
after blessing was asked by Thomas Holden, of Wal- 
nut Ridge, the company proceeded to partake of the 
feast. 

At two o'clock the Reunion was called together 
by the president, Charles Frampton, of Pendleton, In- 
diana. The exercises were opened by singing "Blest 
be the tie," followed by prayer by Abram Symonds, of 
Kennard, Indiana. An original dialogue was given 
by Belle Gilbert and Florence Macy, of Lewisville, 
Indiana, portraying the friendliness of the Bell family 
toward the colored race. An original poem was read 
by Jesse Henby of Cambridge City, Indiana, entitled 
"The Bell Reunion." Another poem composed by Roy 
White, was also read in his absence by his mother, 
Abbie White, of Richmond, Indiana. Letters from 
absent relatives were read. Information of the deaths 
of Lydia Jane Stanley, of Linnville, Jasper County, 
Iowa, and William Parker, of Leroy, Decatur County, 
Iowa, was given. A memoriam to Lydia Jane Stanley 
was read. A song, "There is no time like the old 
time," by quartette. A recitation, "The little old 
trundle bed," by Tillie Johnson, of Richsquare. 
Sketches of the lives of Josiah Bell, Sarah Bell Mor- 
ris, Rebecca Bell Symonds, were read. Song, "The 
old log bam." Interesting remarks were made by 
Thomas Holding, William Bundy, Abram Symonds, 
Benjamin Stewart, Lydia White, John Gilbert and 
others, all expressive of the influence of the teach- 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 93 

ings of our ancestors. A cane was exhibited that was 
the property of John Bell, brought from England by 
his father, Lancelot Bell. It is now in the possession 
of Alfred Bell, of Lewisville. A committee of three, 
namely Jesse Henby, John Gilbert and Alfred Bell 
was appointed to look after and repair the gravestones 
of John Bell and wife and their son, Jesse, and a child 
of his, who lie buried in a neglected place in Manlove 
Park, near Milton, Indiana. A report of the investi- 
gation will be received at next meeting. 

The appointment of officers for the next year re- 
sulted in the re-election of Charles Frampton to the 
chair, and Lizzie Parker, of Lewisville, secretary. 

A vote of thanks from the company was extended 
to Mr. John C. Morris for the use of his beautiful 
grove for the day : we all joined in earnest wishes for 
his speedy restoration to health. The closing song, 
"America," was led by Josiah Reynolds, of Dublin, 
Indiana. Then adjourned to meet at the same place 
the third Tuesday in August, 1896. 

E. W. Morris, Secretary. 

Sarah Bell Morris. 

The subject of this sketch, Sarah Bell Morris, was 
born in Pasquatank County, North Carolina, on the 
16th of First month, 1800. 

Her parents were John and Sarah (Bundy) Bell, 
and when they became imbued with the spirit of im- 
migration, they came west and sought their fortune 
in a new country. It must have been with a feeling 
of trust and confidence in the all-ruling power that 



94 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

they would be cared for in all their trials and ex- 
posures they necessarily had to endure. Their mode 
of travel was very simple, comprising a very meager 
outfit for their convenience during their journey, con- 
sisting of wagons and tents. 

The time consumed in their overland trip was 
near six weeks. It was in the year 1817 when they 
arrived at their destination, about one mile south of 
Cambridge City, Indiana, on what is known as the 
Callaway farm on the banks of Symonds Creek. It 
was almost an unbroken forest. Their cabin was 
built of hewn logs in the fashion of log cabin those 
days, admitting of but one room. The huge fireplace 
on one side served both culinary and heating pur- 
poses. It was no small task to care for and provide 
for this family. Sarah being one of the twelve, and 
the fifth child. She was about seventeen years old, 
just blooming into womanhood. 

Just previous to their coming, Aaron Morris and 
his family came to this same part of the country that 
seemed so plentiful in lands for all. Among his chil- 
dren was one, John Morris, who became pleased with 
the young Sarah Bell. Her practicability and woman- 
ly character, governed by good common sense, was 
soon to be observed, and John soon secured her as 
his promised bride. By this time there had other 
families of Friends gathered in and near portions of 
this vicinity, and a meeting was established near Jack- 
sonburg and bore the name of West-Union and 
served as a place of religious service. Later on, a log 
house was built for meeting purposes on the ground 
which is now known as Manlove Park. This log 



Genealogy OF the Bell Family 95 

house was succeeded by a large frame building, which 
has given place to the present needs of the day. 

It was during the time that this log house was 
standing, that John Morris and Sarah Bell had con- 
cluded to try life's journey together, and by per- 
mission of the Monthly Meeting they were at liberty 
to proceed. The day arrived for the wedding and 
Sarah, dressed in her gown of bombaset, plain but 
neat, no doubt most of her apparel was made by her 
own hands. The groom dressed in his best. But I 
do not presume it was, as it would be expressed now- 
adays, dressed in conventional black. 

As they rode to the meeting house, each on horse- 
back, which was a very common mode of travel, and 
as they neared the creek, which had risen by reason 
of recent rains, it seemed almost impossible to cross. 
But as the necessity of the case demanded the effort, 
she gathering her garments about her, the horses 
plunged into the water and crossed over in safety, 
and arrived at the meeting house which they found 
to be overflowing. After the usual silent waiting they 
arose to speak the words that united their lives as 
one. They observed that many in the rear of the 
meeting arose to their feet in order to get a better 
view of the couple who were uniting their lives as 
husband and wife. 

This was somewhat embarassing to the timid girl 
who was naturally of a retiring nature, but grace and 
strength were given equal to the occasion. It is sup- 
posed that William McKimmy read the marriage cer- 
tificate, as it is in his handwriting. After the usual 
feast following a marriage, they repaired to their new 



96 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

home about a mile southeast of Milton, on the banks 
of west fork of Whitewater, near the road that now 
leads to Connersville. 

There they furnished their new log house, or cabin, 
with the usual furnishings for that day, and no doubt 
they were as happy as any newly married couples of 
the present day and I presume much more contented 
with their possessions. 

Time passed on, remaining there about a year, 
he entered the land that he lived on until his death, 
and this land adjoined the land on which this "Re- 
union" is being held today. Soon after entering this 
new land he built a hewed log house and lived in that 
about twenty years. Then he built the present brick 
house that now stands in our view. Their children 
were five in number, all born in the log house, the 
youngest about one year old at the time of the build- 
ing of the new house. Now they were in more com- 
modious quarters, and the genial, social qualities of 
John Morris and the quiet, unassuming way of his 
wife and their growing family, naturally drew many 
friends. 

In the fall of 1854 John Morris sickened and died, 
and in the space of two weeks his wife followed him 
to his last resting place. The next day after her death 
their daughter, Lydia, joined her parents in the realms 
beyond. Three weeks later another daughter, Martha, 
was called to succumb to the same disease of typhoid 
fever, at that time more fatal than at the present. The 
two sons were both sick at the same time with little 
prospect of their recovery, and only one, the eldest 
of the children, was left free of the malady. So the 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 97 

family circle was broken, four of them gone to their 
home beyond and three remaining in this earthly 
home. 

Sketch of Josiah Bell^ 
By his daughter^ Rebecca Johnson. 

The subject of this sketch was bom in Pasquatank 
County, North Carolina, in 1798. 

Josiah Bell was the fourth child of John and Sarah 
Bell, formerly Bundy. 

John was the son of Lancelot and Mariam Bell, of 
Cackermath, England. Josiah resided with his parents 
for some time in Pasquatank County, then they 
moved to New Garden. 

After the death of his mother, his father took him 
to Quarterly Meeting and went to Nathan Symonds 
who had a daughter. After they started home, his 
father said to him, was there some one there he would 
like to call mother. He said "Yes." Soon after his 
father married Lydia Symonds, of whom he always 
spoke with great respect. After she died he said, 
"She was too pretty to bury." They moved to In- 
diana in 1821. Josiah was married to Abigail Charles, 
the union was blessed with one son, John, and three 
daughters, Gulielma, Rebecca and Caroline. He was 
a man of few words, a look from him, when doing 
anything we ought not to do, was enough. His motto 
was, if he could not speak well of any one not to 
speak at all. He was always ready to lend a helping 
hand in times of need. He departed this life Ninth 
month 10, 1886. His wife survived him until Twelfth 
month 8, 1889. Their married life together extended 
over sixty-five years.

A Copy of Josiah Bell's Marriage Certificate. 

Whereas, Josiah Bell, of West Grove Monthly 
Meeting, in the County of Wayne, in Indiana, son of 
John Bell of the same place and Sarah his wife, de- 
ceased, and Abigail Charles of the county and state 
aforesaid, and Gulielma his wife, having declared 
their intentions of marriage with each other, before 
a Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of 
Friends, held at Whitewater, and having consent of 
parents, their said proposals of ma/rriage were al- 
lowed by said meeting. These are to certify whom it 
may concern, that for the full accomplishment of their 
intentions, this second day of the Fifth mronth, in the 
year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and 
twenty-one, they, the said Josiah Bell and Abigail 
Charles, appeared in a public meeting of the said peo- 
ple held at Whitewater aforesaid, and the said Josiah 
Bell, taking the said Abigail Charles by the hand, de- 
clared that he took her the said Abigail Charles to be 
his wife, promising with divine assistance, to be unto 
her a loving and faithful husband until death should 
separate them; and then the said Abigail Charles did in 
like manner declare, that she took the said Josiah Bell 
to be her husband, promising with divine assistance, 
to be unto him a loving and faithful wife until death 
should separate them. And moreover, they, the said 
Josiah Bell and Abigail Charles (she according to 
the custom of marriage adopting the name of her 
husband), did as a further confirmation thereof, then 
and there to these presents set their hands. 

JOSIAH BELL. 
ABIGAIL BELL. 

And we,whose names are also hereunto sub- 
scribed, being present at the solemnization of 
the said marriage have, as witnesses thereto, 
set our hands the day and year above written.

An Original Poem 
By Jesse Henby. 

Near a shady wooded dell 
Dwelt a clan whose name was Bell, 
Strict the chief was, and severe, 
Sturdy as the passing year, 
In whose duties that combine 
.Actions human and divine, 
John his name was: ne'er forgot 
By his father Lancelot 
Were those principles that he 
Held in their simplicity. 

John was all his life a Friend, 
And the ardor he could lend 
To a cause, that he espoused. 
Was an ardor that was housed 



loo Genealogy of the Bell Family 

In a breast where energy, 
Uprightness and honesty, 
Truth and honor all combined, 
Made a man of steadfast mind, 
Yet he strove that all his kin 
Should obey the discipline. 

On a knoll near rolling leas. 

His plain house 'mid fruitful trees. 

In sound of waves from Simon's creek. 

Where basked the turtle fat and sleek. 

And fish were turning in the shoals. 

Fit subjects for a bed of coals: 

With whir of fowls along the meads 

In which the growth was grass and reeds : 

He owned the farm that is today 

Possessed and tilled by Callaway. 

Twelve children sat around John's board, 

And drank spring water from the gourd 

That hung upon the kitchen wall — 

A vessel that was prized by all ; 

Or played shop with the tailor's "goose" 

Whenever they could find it loose; 

Or when the mild spring winds were damp 

They frolicked in the sugar camp. 

The older ones would do and dare. 

The younger ones were free from care. 

Eighteen hundred and ninety-five. 
Only one is now alive. 
Near the source of Simon's stream 
Is her home. A lovely dream 
Seems the life that brought her there. 
With two daughters' tender care 
Decline her peaceful days, and 
Margaret Gilbert hears the strand 
That lines the trackless, wide expanse 
Toward which, as mortals all advance.

Where the redbird often sings 
Near the lovely Morris Springs, 
The Bell descendants meet each year 
To greet each one with words of cheer 
From good Richsquare and gay Hopewell, 
And other points they come to tell 
The story that is best, jokes 
Have their place, the older folks 
Join in the sweet c(Mnmunion 
Which sounds the Bell Reunion.

Biographical Sketch of Thomas Bell. 

Thomas Bell, the sixth child of John and Sarah 
Bell, was born Fourth month 17, 1802, in Pasquotank 
County, North Carolina. 

When he was nine years old his father moved to 
Guilford County and settled near Springfield meeting 
house. They remained there until Thomas was fif- 
teen years of age, then moved to Indiana and settled 
near Milton, in Wayne County. 

He received a fair education for that time, having 
such teachers as Elijah Coffin and other noted edu- 
cators of that early period. 

He was married in 1828 to Jarusha, daughter of 

Benjamin and Amy Strattan, of Hopewell, Henry 

County, and settled on his land adjoining her father's. 
Two years later, in 1830, he represented his 

county in the General Assembly, later he served one 

term in the Senate. At that time the greater part of 



I02 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

Henry County was an almost unbroken forest, with 
straggling settlements here and there. Among others, 
Thomas Bell set out with brave heart to subdue the 
forest. He put his hands to hard work and ate his 
bread in the sweat of his brow. The love of power 
and greed of gain did not allure him. He loved the 
simple life of the pioneer. 

After spending nine happy years in his little cabin 
home in the clearing, his loved wife faded and died, 
leaving four small children, the youngest of whom 
died soon after the mother. 

After his wife's death he returned to his father's 
house to care for him in his declining years, and re- 
mained there until his marriage with Hannah Men- 
denhall, of Dublin, in 1841. She, too, was a true 
helpmeet and looked well to the ways of her house- 
hold. They, with his three little girls, went immedi- 
ately to his own home, and soon after an orphaned 
nephew came to live with them. 

As time rolled on, the little cabin gave place to a 
more comfortable home. Thomas and Hannah Bell, 
like their southern ancestors, were given to hospi- 
tality. Their house was always open to "Friends 
traveling in the ministry," and many a wayfarer found 
shelter and rest beneath their roof. 

Of their six children the oldest and youngest died 
in infancy. The eldest son, Josiah, gave his young 
life to his country during the Civil War. In 1873 
death again entered the home of Thomas Bell, taking 
the companion of his riper years. 

He was always regular in attendance of Friends 
meetings, both for business and for worship, filling 



Genealogy of the Bell Family 103 

many important positions in the church and occupy- 
ing the station of elder for nearly thirty years. 

He was quiet and unassuming, but often expressed 
a great deal in a few words. He was always ready 
to give a helping hand to others, and his neighbors 
rose up and called him blessed. 

He passed to the life beyond Eleventh month 28, 
1878, at the age of seventy-six, having served his 
generation well. 

Biographical Sketch of David Bell. 

Of the numerous descendants of John Bell, none 
more clearly deserves honorable mention than David 
Bell, the son of Lancelot Bell. 

He was bom near Milton, Indiana, in 1833. His 
parents were pious, good people, inoffensive neigh- 
bors and useful citizens, walking blameless in all the 
relations of life. 

When David was quite a small boy his parents 
moved to Dublin, Indiana, where in the year 1837 his 
mother died, thus at the early age of four years he 
was deprived of a mother's care and love. 

Shortly after this the family lived for some time 
on a farm close to Dublin, afterward they sold this 
farm and purchased one about a mile east of Hope- 
well meeting house, which place continued to be his 
home until a few years before his death. David grew 
to manhood on this place and was engaged in farm- 
ing besides helping his father in the various duties of 
farm life. He never married, but devoted himself 
wholly to the care of his father and his father's family, 



I04 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

which was a very afflicted one. After the death of 
his brother, John Bell, his health began to fail. He 
sold his place and for a time lived with an only sister. 
Even this life of ease failed to bring back the once 
good health, so he concluded to go to a warmer 
climate. 

He accordingly went to Florida, where for a time 
he was engaged in orange culture. After a trip to 
the Northland on a visit he again went South, this 
time to Texas, where for a time he seemed to im- 
prove. Here he remained until his death, July 23, 
1884. During his last sickness and death he was "a 
stranger in a strange land" and was cared for by the 
Sisters of Charity. 

In dying he said: "I do not care to live for my 
own 'sake, but to be useful to others." That was the 
keynote to his character — "To be useful to others." 
His was a life of sacrifice, one of unselfishness, full 
of noble thoughts and kindly deeds. His remains 
were interred in a Catholic cemetery in San Antonia, 
Texas. 



Elias Bundy, son of Benjamin and Sarah Bell 
Bundy, was bom Fourth month 8, 1801, in Per- 
quimans County;, North Carolina. Married Sarah 
Nicholson in Little River Meeting House, North 
Carolina, on the 14th of Seventh month, 1823. 

They moved to Indiana in 1832, with Peninah 
Nicholson, his mother-in-law, entered 160 acres of 
land in Rush County, northwest of Carthage, where 
they made a home in the forest and raised nine chil-

dren. He was a man that labored hard for his 
family and assisted in clearing several farms, always 
showing sympathy and affection and ready to help 
those about him, was full of energy on the line of 
business and everything for good that helped to de- 
velop and make a new and prosperous neighborhood 
and country. 

He was a consistent and devout member of the 
Society of Friends, was an elder for many years in 
Walnut Ridge Meeting, was truly a pillar in the 
church for which he labored with the same zeal and 
energy as for earthly comforts 

He visited his native State in 1852 as companion 
in the ministry and assisting in the spread of the Gk>s- 
pel, also traveled much in Indiana and Ohio in service 
for his Master. With his family he was a regular 
attendant at Walnut Ridge Meeting, where he gave 
much of his time and means to building the meeting 
house and caring for the beautiful cemetery where 
his remains now lay at rest. He died Twelfth 
month 9, 1873, in Rush County, Indiana, aged over 
72 years. 

Jonathan Bundy, son of Benjamin and Sarah 
Bundy, was bom in Perquimans County, North Caro- 
lina, January 13, 1797, and died March 16, 1877, age 
80 years 2 months 3 days. 

He purchased land in Henry County February 10, 
1823, on which tract he lived 54 years. His father 
died when he was about thirteen years old, after which 
he went to Guilford County to live with his uncle, 
John Bell, with whom he moved to this State in 1817, 
and settled near Milton in this county. When he be- 



io6 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

came 21 years of age he went to Jacksonburg and 
worked until the land sale in 1823, after which he 
entered 80 acres of land and built thereon a small 
block house which has recently been destroyed. 
He was never married, but was exceedingly fond of 
children, very affectionate and kind, and ever willing 
and ready to assist the poor and distressed. A man 
that labored hard the greater portion of his life, he 
assisted in clearing several farms and helped frame 
or raise most of the old bams in this neighborhood. 
He was crippled in one leg by a saw mill and in the 
other by a horse falling on him. With all, he was a 
pushing man in business that he took a part in, was 
a consistent member of the Society of Friends, died 
in the triumphs of the Christian religion and is now 
beyond a doubt "before the throne of God in Heaven." 
The above obituary was copied from a clipping in 
a scrap book belonging to the late Ann Bundy Horner, 
the name of the writer was not given, nor the name 
or date of the newspaper. William Bundy is in pos- 
session of Jonathan Bundy's picture.

Mary Bundy, daughter of Elias and Sarah Bundy, 
was born in Perquimans County, North Carolina, 
Ninth month 28, 1826. 

She removed with her parents to Rush County, 
Indiana, in 1832, and grew to womanhood on the 
Bundy homestead between Carthage and Charlotts- 
ville. She was married to Nathan Pearson Ninth

month 24, 1845, at the Walnut Ridge Meeting House, 
according to the custom of the Society of Friends. 
Removing with her husband to the Miami Reserve, 
they arrived at their future homestead on Second 
month 19, 1847. 

Here, on 120 acres of land, just north of where 
the town of Amboy now stands, they settled in al- 
most an unbroken forest, and here they endured the 
privations and hardships incident to pioneer life, 
clearing up a farm, building a home, and raising a 
family of four sons and two daughters. 

She was a consistent member of the Society of 
Friends, and in a quiet way taught by precept and 
example her children and those associated with her 
the Christian faith in humility and meekness. She 
was often afflicted with bodily ailments and during 
the last five years of her life suffered partial paralysis, 
being entirely helpless for two years preceding her 
death, which occured on Third month 18, 1890. 

She often spoke of her relatives of the Bell family. 
Her husband still lives and is in his 84th year and in 
good health. 

Members of the Family who have been Foreign 

Missionaries. 

Micajah M. Binford early in life became a mis-^ 
sionary in Matamoros, Mexico, where his years of 
faithful service are still bearing fruit. 

He always studied the problems of mission work, 
and few have done more to establish this work on a 
sound and solid basis. 



io8 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

He always knew how to interest and help the 
young, and the result was he exerted a very great in- 
fluence over them. The three meetings in which his 
labors as pastor especially lay, were Lynn, Richmond, 
Indiana, Broc4cl)m, New York. 

He was a Friend of the modem type, with a fervor 
and enthusiasm of the new time ; he had also a beau- 
tiful love for the profound truths the early Friends 
gave their lives. 

As a man he was pure, strong and faithful, de- 
voted to his Master, joyous, happy, full of cheer, a 
true friend, an inspiring companion and a valiant 
messenger of the Gospel. His years of service have 
been too brief, but his work was well done. 

Died at Brookl3m, New York, Fourth month 28, 
1902.

Memorial to Roy Wilson White, i 

OF Philadelphia. i 



At the celebration of Alumni Day at the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania, a bronze tablet to the memory 
of the late Prof. Roy Wilson White, of Indiana, was 
unveiled. On the evening of May 19, on his way from 
the university campus to the old Powelton Avenue 
Station, he was brutally assaulted by three colored 
men, and died the following morning. The tablet 
was unveiled by one of his classmates, who gave a 
brief review of the history of the class, stating that 
fourteen of their ninety-seven men had graduated 
with honors; two were chosen by the faculty as fel- 
lows, and three more as associate fellows. The class 
also enjoyed the distinction of spending all of its three 
college years in quarters, which, with Independence 
Hall, form the most interesting group of historical 
buildings in the United States. Studying law in the 
same halls in which George Washington and John 
Adams were inaugurated presidents of the United 
States. 

He was not a man who made friends easily, but 
when one once secured his friendship, he realized 
that it was worth striving for. He was admired by 
all of us for his lovable character, for the purity of

his life; the frank and straight forward manner in 
which he met every problem which was presented to 
him and the kind consideration and courtesy with 
which he treated all. Because of this love we bear 
for Him, I dedicate this tablet to the memory of our 
late classmate, Roy Wilson White. 

Memorial of Lydia Jane (Bell) Stanley. 

Since we were so happily assembled at our "little 
reunion" one year ago, another one of our number 
has been called to the great "Reunion" above. 

After a protracted illness of several weeks' dura- 
tion, Lydia Jane Bell Stanley, at the age of 58 years, 
died August 20, 1894, at her home near Linnville, 
Iowa. She was the only surviving child of Jesse Bell 
(deceased), of Wayne County, Indiana. 

She was married to Michael Stanley November 1, 
1854, and in 1859 they moved to Jasper County, Iowa, 
where, as good citizens, they founded their home and 
reared their family of nine children. Lydia Jane was 
a faithful wife and devoted mother, and knew no sac- 
rifice too great to make for the benefit and comfort of 
her family. She was a life-long and useful member 
of Friends, always attending the services whenever 
she could and prized it as a spiritual feast. She had 
great faith in God. In her last moments she said to 
her family, which was gathered about her: "There 
is no death, but all is life beyond." . Death had been 
robbed of its sting, and in the ecstacy of joy and de- 
light she exclaimed : "I see the angels coming." 



112 Genealogy of the Bell Family 

Her's was a useful life, and although we call her 
dead, she still lives in her grand deeds. Of her it can 
be truthfully said, "The world is better for her hav- 
ing lived in it."
