Laura Smith Bell was my great-great grandmother, she was my mother's grandmother. She was the daughter of George and Delphia Smith. She was born in Bostwick Georgia in 1855.
During her youth the family moved to Watkinsville Georgia. There she entered the Common School with Dr. Mahony as her teacher. After completing the sixth grade and being unable to continue her education, she agreed to enter into Holy Matrimony with Marshall Bell on January 6, 1869 and they had sixteen children, twelve girls and four boys. She and Marsh Bell were married for over sixty five years. He was a Minister and a very prosperous and generous farmer who was very well known and respected back in that time.

She was a life time member of the very First Bethel Baptist Church in Watkinsville Georgia that my great-great grandfather Rev. Marsh Bell who owned the land and he also donated the land and all the timber that the Church was built on.
