David Bell duplicate
BTW: I love your moniker and your photo!

This is the memorial to which I was making reference:
Pvt David Melvin Bell
Huron County
Ohio, USA
Feb. 28, 1862
Marion County
Kentucky, USA

David Melvin Bell, a son of Emeline (née Slocum) and David S. Bell, was born about 1842 in Ripley Township, Huron County, Ohio.

David M. Bell enlisted on 5 November 1861 and on 2 December 1861 mustered in Company C, 65th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The regiment moved in December to Kentucky, and beginning in February 1862 to Tennessee.

Private David M. Bell died on 28 February 1862 in Lebanon, Kentucky. A U.S. burial register also shows that D. M. Bell of Company C, "65 Ohio V," died on 28 February 1862, aged 19 years. According to his father's biographical account, David Melvin Bell "died in 1862, at Lebanon, Ky., of disease alleged to have been caused by poisoned maple sugar served to the troops..."*

Emanuel Weaver
Really odd, the burial index for Greenwood cemetery in Muscatine has the following listing - WEAVER EMANUEL 60 M died March 21, 1901 buried March 24, 1901. An error somewhere I guess.

George Yearian
Hi Eric,
Thanks for writing! George Yearian and Elizabeth Bell were my g-g-grandparents, so Robert Bell was also my ancestor. I hope you will understand without offense that I am reluctant to make the transfer you request. However, I am sure we can ammend the biography so it is satisfactory to both of us. Just send me the text as you would like it to appear, and if I have no objection to any of it - and I will probably have none - I will enter it.
Although I have quite a few papers relating to George's service, I did not know that he received land in Missouri. I would very much appreciate it if you could send me a copy of whatever it is you have that states that.
Thanks again and best wishes.

Hersperger/Wiles family
I noticed your comment on James Wiles site 29766619 that Thomas Wiles and Betsy House were his parents. Do you know much about them? I'm really not sure who he connects to. I descend from Elizabeth Hersperger Wiles brother John Bernard Hersberger and his wife Sarah Ann Wiles. I have often wondered if she and James were siblings? Any information on that? I have a lot of information on the Hersperger family that came from Switzerland to Jefferson.

That number no longer works for Elizabeth. Sanford made a new memorial for her today in Nichols Cemetery. It would seem likely that she would be buried there, but there are no records that I've seen for her there. When I get time I will go and check her probate record, though, and see if there might be some information you could use. I linked her other children that are in Nichols Cemetery to her also.

I made the corrections to the Neps memorials. Are you related? If so, I can make transfers.
