Trying to identify Thirza A, first wife of Frederick Bell; he was born abt 1809 and is shown on the 1850 census married to Frances C. Two sons are named Dennis (age 15) and Alexander (age 10) are listed in this census. In the Weston Methodist Cemetery (Webster) there are two listings of interest. The first is a son, Alexander F., born 1840 to Frederick and Francis C. Bell. This son died at age 17 in 1857; therefore, he would not have been in the 1860 census. The next Bell listing in this cemetery record is for a son named Dennis A., born 1835 to Frederick and Thirza A. Bell. This son died in 1856 at age 21. Both of these young men are reflected in the 1850 census of Fred Bell's household.

This same Fred gave a later born son the combined name of two deceased sons, i.e., Dennis Alexander. Perhaps Thirza was a first wife and Frederick had remarried by 1840 to Frances. There are no other Bells listed in this cemetery.
