Samuel Bell

Curious about your interest in Samuel. From what I can determine, he is my great-great-grandfather. He appears to be the most likely candidate for the father of Rachel R. Bell who married my Great grandfather, Miletus Bell. She was his second wife.

I am beginning to have some experience with those old marble stones. Once in contact with the ground, they become weak at the point at the soil line, which leads to their toppling over. Once they are buried and in constant contact in certain soils, they begin to disintegrate. All of which is what appears to have happened with Samuel's stone.

It was there back in the seventies when they enumerated the cemetery.

The Bells are located in the rear towards the right hand side after you enter the cemetery. Most of them used a possible native stone that attracts moss or lichens and they discolor terribly, making soaping the only alternative to being able to read them, though sometimes I also use talcum powder to get a good photo.

Let me know about your interest. been researching these folk for thirty years.

RE: Henry and Sarah Plowman
Henry's stone is barely legible, that's why the picture isn't as clear. It's in the old section of the cemetery and alot of stones are that way. I have the cemetery records for Bunker Hill and I was able to locate their markers from them. If I am able get back in the spring or summer I'll see if I can clean them up. James is located beside them so I snapped a picture of his as well.

RE: Henry and Sarah Plowman
You're welcome. I know that Sarah's marker was unreadable. If I am able to in Spring or Summer I hope to go back and clean it off some to where it is readable.

The inscription on the stone of Daniel Bell is ver hard to read. The battle of Tippecanoe was Nov. 7, 1811.

This is the best I could do. Donnie

The Tombstone mentions something about the Battle of Tippecanoe. I'll try to make another trip and get all the inscription.
