Adah Bell
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1878
Michigan, USA
Death: 1952

Grace Bell (1874-1960,)
Adah M. Bell (1878-1952,) and
Mary Bell Burns (1882-1974,)
all buried at Greenwood Memorial Park, were among the children of
Frank Bell (1846-1908) and
Ellen M. Bell (1848-1901.)
The girls had two other siblings:
Walter Bell (born circa 1872 and died after 1930) and
Martha C. Bell (born 1881 and died after 1900.)

Sometime before 1900 the entire family moved from Michigan to Spokane, Washington. Mrs. Bell died in Spokane in 1901, and Mr. Bell in 1908. In 1910 and 1920 Grace and Adah lived with their sister Mary Bell Burns in Spokane. In 1930 Grace and Adah lived by themselves in Spokane, and by 1940 the two sisters had moved to San Gabriel, Los Angeles County, California.
