Thanks so much to all the Bell family researchers, especially Kathleen Bell Neely, for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. I hope someone will add a photo of David. Thanks to Mark Barnard for photos of David's grave. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know.
