Classification: Query
Surnames: Trainham, Belvin, Wright
A daughter of Archibald Trainham and his third wife, Martha, married my great, great grandfather. This daughter, Bell (maybe Isabelle or Isabella), was born ca. 1890 in Louisa Co. (according to marriage license info. from She was 24 when she married my ancestor William (or Wiley) Belvin--he was 75! When he died 3 years later, she soon after married an even older man (80), John Wright. By the 1920 census, she and John were living in the Dinwiddie Co. alms house. Although she is no blood relation, I am naturally intrigued by her choice of husbands. I would love to know more about her, her father Archibald and mother Martha. I am also curious as to what happened to her after John Wright died.
