James Daniel Bell, a farmer, was born November 8, 1828 in Bryan County, Georgia. The son of John C. Bell and Mary Sims Bell (or Mary Cowart Bell) , James Daniel Bell had five siblings and three half-siblings. His stepmother was Keziah Sweet Bell. One of his brothers was William H. Bell who married Lucinda Hendrix Bell. James married Lucinda's sister, Mary Hendrix Bell, and they had eight children: David Clayton Bell, Sr., Andrew P. Bell, Emily S. Bell, Daniel Mack Bell, Mary C. Bell, Martha Elizabeth Bell Braid, J. Clayton Bell, and Moses F. Bell. He died September 15, 1885 in Bryan County at age 56 and is buried in Little Creek Cemetery in Bryan County. His ancestry was Scots, English, and--through the Bell surname--Native American (Lumbee). I hope one of his descendents will add his photo to this site.
