Birth: 1755
County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Death: Jan. 10, 1798
Fairfield County
South Carolina, USA

Margaret Montgomery was born in County Antrim, Ireland; daughter of John & Anne Montgomery. In October 1772, Margaret and her family departed from Larne, Ireland aboard the ship "Lord Dunluce" for Charleston, South Carolina arriving just before the New Year. On January 6, 1773 Margaret was granted 100 acres on the waters of Calhoun Creek; which indicates she was single and over 15 when she arrived. The land is located in what is now Abbeville County, South Carolina.

In November 1773, Margaret married William Bell, with whom she had eleven children:

William Bell, Jr. (1775 1845)
James M. Bell (1778 1809)
Margaret Bell McGill (1780 1825)
John Bell (1781 1849)
Charles Bell (1785 1844)
Thomas Bell (1785 1850)
Hugh Bell (1789 1864)
Elizabeth "Betsy" Bell McKell (1790 1842)
Adam Bell (1791 1833)
Robert Bell (1795 1848)
Isabella Bell Montgomery (1797 1891)

Margaret Montgomery Bell departed this life just months after the birth of her last child on the 10th day of January 1798. She is buried in the churchyard cemetery at Old Brick Ebenezer A.R.P. church.
