RE: Woodson Bell b. 1797
Janet, thanks so much for the information. As I mentioned my grandfather on my mother's side of the family was a descendant of Charles W. Bell, b. 1851, a brother of your descendent. I never knew him or anyone in his family for my grandparents were divorced when I was only 2/1/2 yrs. old. His family and that of his father are all deceased now. I scanned through the cemeteries you mentioned and there are quite a few Bell's.
If I should find Woodson Bell's parents I will share the info with you.
Nice communicating with you as well. Thanks again and best wishes! Connie

Woodson Bell b. 1797
Janet, I noticed your comment on Find A Grave #122925267. You make reference to Woodson Bell b. 1797. Do you have any information for his children or family? His son that I know of was Charles W. Bell b. 1847, my grandfather's father.

Hi Janet.... I'm the fifth great grandson of Abraham Slack the younger (I sponsor his memorial.) and wondered if we might be living cousins. Always fun to find them.

Robert Carter Nicholas Sr.
Hello I am researching my Nicholas family line. I was wondering if you may know the names of Robert Carter Nicholas's 11 children? I know 2 of them are Philip Norborne Nicholas and Lewis Nicholas. I am particularly hoping to find an Andrew or Andrew Jay Nicholas. He was my great great grandpa and was born 1812 in Calhoun, VA and he married Nancy Ann Adams. Thanks :)

woodson bell
both woodson bell's I founf were by looking thru u.s. census records on line, and also family census records were only as good as the person relating the info to the census taker, and oft times I find they were wrong... many people of the era were afraid of the census taker, fearing more tax or loss of property to the gov't, so they fudged info...

family is comprised of records from varied and various sources but I believe represent accurate info.. it is run by jesus Christ of the latter day saints and the have a huge data base of family records going back many years.. anyone can join at no cost...

wish you much luck....
