Notes for I
SABELLE "BELL" ALEXANDER:
Nickname: Bell
Her first husband, Matt, was a minister. His occupation brought them to Harbin, Tx. Matt then died at some point, leaving her a widow with two sons. Bell's brother, Alfred, then moved from Seguine, Tx to Harbin to help his sister raise her sons. Bell later married Chester Seward and had two more sons.

In a letter from Serena R. Alexander to her son, Alfred, Bell and Matt are mentioned. As the postmark of the letter is May 8, 1892, it shows that Bell and Matt were probably already married at that time.
