Birth: Mar. 2, 1876
Death: Jul. 18, 1911

Daughter of Francis Marion Champ and Ruth Ann [Duvall].

Alex Tribune, Alex, Grady Co., OK, Friday, July 21, 1911: "Mrs. C. E. Bell - Mrs. Charles E. Bell passed away Tuesday afternoon, after a short and unequal struggle with Death. Last week Mrs. Bell gave birth to triplets, two boys and a girl, and complications were the cause of her death. Probably no event has happened in this community for years that has caused more universal sympathy and compassion than the death of Mrs. Bell whose proud motherhood of a fine set of triplets was still the subject of congratulation. Every effort was made to alley her suffering and to ward off a fatal end, but an All-wise Providence ruled otherwise. Mrs. Bell was a young woman, thirty-five years of age. She has lived with her husband and little ones here for a number of years. Her birthplace was Champaign, Ill. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. M.Champ,live at Odell, Neb., but on account of sickness neither could come to her. Mrs. Bell leaves a husband and nine children, the eldest being fifteen years old. She was a woman well beloved y her friends, and was an ideal wife and mother. The sincere sympathy of the community goes out to the bereft family. The funeral services were held at the home, west of Alex, Wednesday afternoon, and a large concourse of friends followed the remains to their last resting place, the interment being in Laflin Cemetery. Rev. Flanagin conducted the services both at the house and the grave. Mrs. Bell's two brothers, John, of Chickasha, and William, of Shawnee, were at the services, and remained to assist their brother."
