Hi Thomas, Do you know who Ester CARTER parents were? In another post you say John and Ester were married in Belfast, Ireland. How sure are you of this? Have you ever heard stories about Ester receiving a substantial inheritance from an uncle?

My reasons for asking is that one of the beneficiaries of the estate of Lieut-Col John BELL was an E SUTHREN who appears to be a child of Elizabeth (BELL) CARTER, the sister of John BELL. Each beneficiary received about 600 pounds, a substantial sum in 1836. The BELL/CARTER family was from Laois (Queen's Co) in Ireland and Ester would likely have married there or in Ontario as the family came to Tecumseth Township ca 1830.

I descend from a brother of John BELL.
