Descendants of James Bell

Generation No. 2


2. SARAH ANN4 BELL (JAMES3, ADAM2, THOMAS1) was born 1790 in South Carolina, and died 13 Apr 1881 in Macoupin Co., ILL. She married WILLIAM CLACK 04 Aug 1806 in Warren Co., Kentucky, son of STERLING CLACK and MARY WOOD. He was born 19 Feb 1788 in Georgia, and died 01 Jul 1856 in North Otter Township, Macoupin Co., ILL.

Notes for S
ARAH ANN BELL:
Sarah Bell shows up as married to William Clack who is the brother of John Clack who married Cassandra Bell in Kentucky and so I have her as part of this family. At a minimum she is a first cousin. Also, she would have been the eldest daughter and James wife's name may have been Sarah. Naming the eldest after parents was common. It should also be noted that Simpson County was formed from Warren and Logan Counties so you will see all these counties listed in this family.

In the 1860 census, Sarah shows up living with her daughter Elizabeth Clack Alderson in Macoupin County, ILL. In the LDS Pedigree resource files a Roger Grimshaw, source of the LDS information, lists her father a James Bell. No source is listed.



Notes for W
ILLIAM CLACK:
The 1850 Illinois census shows William as born in Georgia. William and Sarah moved to Macoupin County, Illinois sometime between 1830 and 1840 as they show up in the 1840 census but not the 1830 Illinois census. In the obituary of a Charles Perks, it states that he was in the butcher business with William Clack in Macoupin CO. William later sold out his interest to Charles.

Marriage Notes for S
ARAH BELL and WILLIAM CLACK:
I also verified this marriage and date through a posting of Warren County marriages for 1806 on the Rootsweb Archives for South-central Kentucky by Sandi Gorin.

  Notes for MARY "POLLY" CLACK:
There is some confusion over which Mary Clack was James wife. Stronger eveidence if for Mary, daughter of John not William.

Notes for S
AMUEL ELLIOTT WHITESIDES:
Birth place is also shown as Bedford, VA. in LDS records and death place is shown as Warren County, KY which makes sense since he shows up in the court records several times in that county.

Whitesides Cemetery - Go 7 miles north of Franklin on Highway 31W, then 4 miles east on Cedar Bluff Road. Cemetery is 3/10 miles south on the Cartmill property, formerly J L Crafton, at the site of Cedar Bluff College. Follow the gravel road to the right and the cemetery is beside a barn on the right-hand side. The Cartmill Family now owns the farm.

The Whitesides/Ernest Feud
In the northeastern part of Simpson County there lived a family by the name of Whitesides. Samuel Whitesides, the founder, whose wife was a Bell, had quite a large estate on Drakes Creek. He was the father of Davis, Washington, Tom, William and Berry. While they were not aristocrats, they were people of fine sense and an unbounded amount of nerve.
In the same community there lived a man by the name of Jake Ernest, a shrewd and unscrupulous horse trader, who had quite a following among a lower class of people than the Whitesides family. The Whitesides being of a higher type of citizens there grew up a jealousy and enmity between these two factions, which finally culminated in the assassination of Washington Whitesides, which occurred near a place called Hickory Flat. (This was in Mr. Cecil Meadow's field, just above our woods.)
Washington Whitesides was spending the night at the place and during the night he was called to the door and shot. Mark Whiteside, who was a son of Wash Whitesides, gave the history of this feud to me. Quoting Mark, one Herrington was hired to kill Wash Whitesides for the sum of $100. One Dinning, a close friend of Jake Ernest, was to go along to see the work done. When Wash was called to the door Herrington whispered to Dinning, "1 can't do it," whereupon Dinning said, "Give me the gun, then. I can," and he did.
The Whitesides were much bothered to know who did the killing. They employed a detective from Cincinnati, laying him the sum of $l60O to obtain information satisfactory to them as to the killer of Wash Whitesides. This took more than a year's time. This work developed the fact that Jake Ernest, wanting to get rid of Wash Whitesides, had hired Herrington to kill him, with the understanding that Dinning was to go along to see it done. In order to divert suspicion, Jake Ernest started to Bowling Green, it being the night before county court there, and stopped for the night with Mose Hess, a short distance from Bowling Green. Being a trader and horse dealer, he told Mr. Hess that he had a horse at home which would exactly suit him and at midnight or shortly after he rose and returned to his home under the pretense of getting the horse to show to Mr. Hess. The real purpose of the trip was to see whether or not Wash Whitesides had been killed.
Each side of this feud had its friends who would aid and abet them in any manner in which they were called upon to help. Some of the relatives of Wash Whitesides even sided with the Ernest crowd, George Bell, an own cousin of Wash being one of the numbers. Another was Alec White, a son-in-law of Bell, who carried the news that Wash was spending the night at this place some seven or eight miles from his home.
The Whitesides were a high-strung and determined set of people and as soon as they found out the facts in the case they set about to destroy all who had any connection with. Something more than a year after Wash Whitesides was killed Jake Ernest and his friend, Bill Dinning, attended a sale across the line in Warren County. On the return trip a short distance before they got to Drakes Creek they were fired upon and Jake Ernest fell dead. Dinning escaped by running his horse at top speed but was shot at several times between there and the creek. Sam Williams, an adherent to the Whitesides clan, killed Dinning later at his own home.
After Ernest's death the feud was on. Davis Whitesides, a brother of Wash, was murdered in his own home on Sinking Creek. George Bell, on the other side, was murdered in his home in the suburbs of Franklin (At the Mack Lamb place). Alec White was killed in the Franklin jail and it is said that he fought till the last. The next morning a man's little finger was found on the jail floor. It is supposed that this finger was bitten off in the fight. Mark Whitesides carried one hand in his pocket for a long time and ever after one finger was missing.
Before Bill Dinning was killed (below Barnes school) the two factions met in Franklin and had quite a battle in which Bill Dinning was shot to pieces while he was hiding behind a hitching post. William Whitesides stood in a store door doing the shooting, telling his nephew, Mark, to load the guns right for he could shoot them. In the same battle Jerry Lynch was shot in the knee and Berry Whitesides had a hole shot through his hat which was on his head. The sons of Wash Whitesides were George, county judge of Simpson County, Wash, Bill, Joe, a stock dealer, Sam, and Mark, an uncommonly shrewd and genteel gambler. These sons of Wash, together with their uncles, William and Berry, were the ones to avenge the death of Wash. Sam Williams, who killed Bill Dinning, went to Missouri and it is said that Dinning's son, 0l Dinning, followed him there and killed him.
The superior intelligence of the Whitesides clan, together with their indomitable spirit, left them victors of the feud. The Ernest faction, those who were not killed, scattered and went away. The Whitesides remained and were among the foremost citizens of Simpson County for a half-century thereafter. Only a few, however, now survive.
After the feud was over William Whitesides founded Cedar Bluff College on what was known as the old Samuel Whitesides homestead. This he ran successfully until about l893, when it was destroyed by fire. Out of this institution grew up Potter College at Bowling Green, which was finally bought by the state and is now a part of Western Kentucky State Teachers' College. With this change William F. Cabell, who was sponsored by William Whitesides, went to Bowling Green. Cedar Bluff College was started by Whitesides for his own family and a very few others.
Berry Whitesides and Mark, his nephew, were noted gamblers in steamboat days on the Mississippi; sometimes rich, sometimes poor. At one time Berry owned the Bell Meade farm at Nashville but went home to spend his old days with his brother, William. Berry was never married. He acted as overseer of the estate for a number of years before he became mentally incapacitated. George Whitesides, a son of Wash, was a very prominent citizen of Simpson County, filling various offices and practicing law until the time of his death.
Young Bill, Davis and Wash Whitesides were killed, Jake Ernest, Bill Dinning, Alec White, and George Bell were all killed on the Ernest side. this was before the Civil War, along in the 1850's.
On account of the intimacy between Sam William's wife and Bill Dinning, Sam Williams was chosen to kill Bill Dinning. Dinning lived down the road from Barnes schoolhouse. Bill was killed on Sunday morning. He and his children were out to catch a chicken; Williams was hidden in the bushes and killed him. The Whitesides were shrewd enough to know how to enlist his help. The whole affair started over a rivalry between Jake Ernest and Wash Whitesides for the affections of Kate Holland, a half-sister of Dock Holland. She married Crack Herrington and later married John Wess Hunt.
Davis Whitesides had nothing to do with the feud; lived away from the rest of them but was killed just for spite. He was murdered at his home in daytime.

4. CASSANDRA "CASSIE"4 BELL (JAMES3, ADAM2, THOMAS1) was born 04 Apr 1792 in Simpson Co., KY, and died 01 Apr 1867 in Jackson Co., Mo.. She married JOHN TWITTY CLACK 02 Aug 1809 in Logan Co., Kentucky, son of STERLING CLACK and MARY WOOD. He was born 29 Nov 1791 in Logan Co.(Simpson Co), Kentucky, and died Bef. 1850 in Petersburg, Menard Co, Illinois.

Notes for C
ASSANDRA "CASSIE" BELL:
Cassy came from a prominent, well-to-do planter family. Two stories of her girlhood came down to her granddaughter, Elizabeth Clack, and to her daughter-in-law, Hannah Britton Clack, both of whom told them to Elizabeth's daughter, Helen Hannah Graham as related in Robert Lowry's Book, "Footprints". One was that Cassy's father insisted she wear white gloves whenever she left the plantation house and went to the plantation store. She told how she would be sent back to the house when she forgot. The other story was that the only time her father ever whipped a slave was the time he caught and flogged a Negro man and woman for making love on the second floor veranda just outside Cassy's window. Both of these point to Cassy being from one of the wealthy Bluegrass planter families. So does the fact that soon after marrying Cassy, John Twitty Clack soon became more prosperous than his father and brothers. In his book, "Footprints", on the Lowry, Clack, And Bell line, Robert Lowry makes a case for a Samuel Bell as Cassy's grandfather and his son, James Bell as her father. The evidence is too circumstantial for any definite conclusion. Finally, I show Cassandra as born in 1792 so she could not have been born in Simpson County, Kentucky or anywhere else west since it was not a county until 1819. Most likely she was born in the part of Logan County that later became Simpson County. Also, in some notes on the Jones cemetery Samuel Bell is listed as brother of Cassandra Bell.

Notes for J
OHN TWITTY CLACK:
As mentioned in the notes on Cassy Bell, John's wife, John and Cassy moved soon after the birth of their second son, Sterling S. Clack from Simpson County to Caldwell County. There, either by inheritance from his wife's family or by his own efforts they prospered. So great did they prosper that John was said to have raised thoroughbred horses which he raced not only in Kentucky but also in New Orleans where he had relatives who descended from sons and daughters of his grandfather, William Clack, who had gone from North Carolina to Georgia, including the naval captain John Henry Clack. John later moves to Illinois where he dies. They were living near his brother William (1840 Macoupin Co tax list).

He married (1) KINDNESS BEARDEN 22 Aug 1817 in Caldwell Co., KY, daughter of WINN BEARDEN and MARY MCCALLISTER. She was born 1800 in Caldwell Co., Ky, and died Bef. 1823 in Kentucky. He married (2) MARGARET VAUGHAN 1823 in Kentucky, daughter of SHADRACK VAUGHAN and SARAH HOWE. She was born 15 Oct 1808 in Richmond, Henrico Co, Virginia, and died 26 Dec 1890 in Healdsburg, Sonoma Co, Ca..

Notes for S
AMUEL BELL:
From all evidence, I believe that this Samuel and John Bell were brothers. Family researchers for both families have compared many notes and find compelling evidence such as both John's grandson, Francis Marion Bell, and Samuel Bell were buried in the Jones Cemetery in Missouri (Samuel was later moved to the Machulpah Cemetery), both report W. T. Bell of Lexington, Mo. as a relative, both lived near each other in Missouri, and John eventually ended up with some of Samuel's land. There is a note from the Jones cemetery listing Samuel as brother of Cassandra Bell. After Samuel died, his family traveled in 1857 to Sonoma Co., California by wagon with their uncle Tom and his family. Many of John Bell's family also ended up in this part of California.

There is some conflicting data as to the year and place of Samuel's birth. As you will note below, one source says 1797, Logan Co., KY and another says 1795, and he is noted in the 1850 Jackson Co., Missouri records as born in South Carolina. The LDS files list his birth as 1797 in Union Co, SC. and his father as James H. Bell.

Notes for M
ARGARET VAUGHAN:
After Samuel's death, Margaret and several of her children traveled by wagon with her brother Thomas to Healdsburg, Cal. where she later died.

Death Notice of Margaret:

The Healdsburg Enterprise 3 January, 1891

At half past eleven o'clock on the night of December 26th, Mrs. Margaret Bell passed out of life at the advanced age of 84 years, 2 months and 11 days. She was born at Richmond, Virginia, in 1806. When twelve years of age she removed with her parents to Kansas where she resided until after her marriage. This happy event occurred in 1823, her husband being Samuel Bell, at all times a man of sterling character. A few years after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Bell took up their abode in Missouri, where they lived very happily for many years. In 1854 Mr. Bell was called away by the death angel and in 1857 his widow crossed the plains to California in an ox team, being accompanied by her younger children. The lady settled here in Healdsburg where she spent the remainder of her long and useful life.

Mrs. Bell was the mother of ten children, of whom seven are yet alive. Five of the number are respected residents of this locality; J. S. Bell, G. K. Bell, A. K. Bell, J. W. Bell and Mrs. L. Vaughan. The others - W. T. and H. H. Bell - reside in Missouri. And a most excellent mother she was, too, rearing a large family in a way that made her old age peaceful and blessed. She lived in the front ranks of our race in its mighty march across the continent. She saw the wilderness blossom as the rose and cities rise up where for ages no mark of man appeared. And she enjoyed her experience keenly, and made use of the opportunities it afforded of doing lasting good works. Early in her career, the lady joined the Methodist Church and her life harmonized well with the teachings of that great institution.
Her home here was a preaching place for the early Methodist clergymen. Although she suffered much pain in the closing years of her life, Mrs. Bell was never known to murmur or complain. She bore her crosses patiently and lived a cheerful, Christian life to the last.
Her remains were interred at Oak Mound Cemetery, last Sunday afternoon, the funeral services being held at the M. E. Church, South, and the cortege being one of the largest ever seen in Healdsburg. The pall-bearers were; W. T. Allen, S. O. Heaton, D. D. Phillips, I. C. Laymance, D. Thornton and John Clack. All of them save Mr. Thornton had known Mrs. Bell for over 33 years. May the venerable lady rest in peace.
