Thanks so much to Nevada McClelland Bell and Bell family researchers for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. I hope someone will add a photo of Ruby. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know.
