|Death: ||Apr. 26, 1890|
Obituary - On Saturday morning, April 26th at about 9'oclock, the casket enclosing the remains of Henry Bell was borne from his home near Fairview to the home of his sister, Mrs. Rachel Baird, of this place, arriving at 2 1/2 o'clock p.m., where were in waiting many relatives, and visitors, former associates, friends and neighbors. After about an hour's rest, and refreshments, the carriages and wagons with the family and immediate friends proceeded to the little graveyard near North Salem known as Bell's cemetery, and there deposited the remains. Funeral services were held at his home conducted by Revs. White and Smith of Fairview. He was a former resident of this community, but the last eleven years of Oxford township, this county. He served his country faithfully through the late conflict. Politically he was a sound Democrat. However men might differ from him in opinions, all recognized the rugged honesty of his character, and his opinions could not be swerved by favor. He had been a sufferer for several years and passed through weeks of the severest bodily pain, and fought courageously, hopefully, the battle with his disease, and bore his sufferings with patience. His last illness was a relapse of lagrippe. Besides the members and relatives of the family who accompanied the remains here were Messrs. Wm. Griffin, Robert Stevens, Wm. and Josie Hamilton, of Fairview. The sympathy of the people is with the bereaved friends.
