Birth: Jan. 25, 1837
Death: Aug. 2, 1901

This is from the August 3, 1901 True Citizen.

AFTER A LONG, LINGERING ILLNESS A GALLANT CONFEDERATE SOLDIER HAS GONE:

Lieut. Seaborn J. Bell, an old and highly esteemed citizen, died at his home in this city yesterday at 5 p. m., after a lingering illness of several months.

Lately he ha rallied sufficiently to sit up, and just before his death had dressed to take a ride with a neighbor, Mr. Chas. W. Hurst.

Lieutenant Bell was a gallant Confederate soldier, and in following the firtunes of the Lost Cause, lost a leg in the service. He was twice elected Commander of Gordon Camp No. 369 United Confederate Veterans, and was Clerk of Burke Superior Court several years filling all the positions entrusted to him with honor and ability.

He was about 62 years of age, and leaves besides his wife and several children, a host of friends to mourn his death. The heartfelt sympathies of the entire county go out to the sorrowing family.

Mr. Bell was a consistent member of Old Church and his remains will be interred at the family burying ground at Old Church this afternoon at 4 o'clock.
