Joseph A. Bell
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1841
Death: 1922


Joseph A. Bell, confederate veteran, was born in Tennessee in 1841. Around 1852 he moved to Bellville, Austin County, Texas. On October 1, 1861, he enlisted in the Confederate Army in San Antonio and was mustered into the 5th Texas Calvary Company I, under the command of Colonel Thomas Green. His starting rank was sergeant, but on October 22, 1861, he resigned and was demoted to private.
Joseph went back to Texas, and either married Mary E. Spence or came home to his wife. The date of the marriage is unknown. They lived in Texas, and on June 14, 1921, he moved into the Confederate Veterans Home in Austin. A couple of months later, Mary joined him. On April 27, 1922, Joseph died at the Home, and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery the next day.
All this information came from his Death Certificate, Confederate's Veterans Home Roaster, and the Regiment Roll cards.
