Some of the names that Nancy mentioned--in particular Ida Trenchard Bell, connect eventually to my husband's lineage. Ida was d/o Wm. and Sarah (Irwin) Bell, as you know. I have Wm. Bell's parents as John Bell & Nancy Franklin. I got that info. from various sources.
I am very, very interested in communicating with anyone who is researching Wm Bell and his wife, Sarah(Irwin), because it is her mother, Jane, who was a sister to my husband's Gt. Grandfather, William Phillips.
