James K. Bell
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 3, 1828
Death: Feb. 24, 1895

Capt. James Karr Bell, who recently died at La Cross, Wis., was born near Lexington,
Richland County, O., Jan. 13, 1837. He was the son of Hamilton Bell and a brother of
R.W. Bell and Mrs. Reuben Fike, of Worthington Township. At an early age he removed to
Lima where he learned the art preservative and followed that avocation until the breaking
out of the civil war when he served as captain of Co. E., 192 O.V.I., until the close of
the war. Returning to Lima after the war was over he filled the office of United States
marshal for eight years after which he was elected county clerk of Allen County, which
office he held for several years. He was married to Louise Maxwell in 1846, a family of
10 children being born, five of whom survive him. In 1890 he removed with his wife and
daughter to Minnesota, in the hope that change of climate would aid in restoring his
wife's health, but the change was unavailing and she passed to the rest and was laid away
on Jan. 1, 1894. -- [Mansfield News: 18 April 1895, Vol. XI, No. 43]
