Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a dedicated genealogist for my large extended family. I have degrees in Anthropology and Psychology. I have worked in research, computer project management, and data center management during my business career. Now I enjoy genealogy!

My family names include Bell and Petty from Paulding County, GA. and North and Latimer from Carroll Co., GA. They first came over from England and Europe and settled for a while in Virginia, later they followed the trails to the Carolinas and finally settled in Georgia. A few kept moving westward to Texas and Louisiana. Some have disappeared along the way, and I hope to one day find those who are still missing.

RE: Sally Darby's Tombstone
You're welcome for the photo. The inscription is from an 1892 book entitled "Inscriptions on Tombstones and Monuments in the Burying Grounds of the First Presbyterian Church and St John's Church at Elizabeth, New Jersey."

You can find it at this link :

In the back of the book there is an index of names as well as a map of the church grounds showing the grave locations by number.

Since all church records were lost in two fires, this book of inscriptions is the only record remaining of the burials there. People thought to have been buried there either in the grounds or in the church itself will not be found in this book unless their tombstones existed in 1892. Fortunately, Sally's was legible back then.

RE: Virgil Bell's Death certificate
Hello, Gwen
Sorry, I don't have the original. And I'm not related to Virgil. I got his dc off the internet. You might be able to see the original at the Georgia Archives. I remember wanting to see the original of a document once long ago and was able to request that it be taken out and shown to me.
I'm from Atlanta and my middle name is Gwen. Does that make us sort-of-related?

RE: Col Henry P. Darby
Thanks Gwyn! I'm in the process of moving back to the US from Europe right now, but hope to be able to spend some time after January to do some research.

Col Henry P. Darby
My pleasure. You're the first in the Darby line I've met in over my 7 years of research. If you ever want to collaborate, please let me know, I'd be happy to work together.
