Notes for James Bell: I can follow the Bell line from Robert Bell to James, Sr. to James Bell who died Oct 27, 1847 (age 60). He was married to Elizabeth Fairley who died Nov 10, 1843 (age 52). They had a daughter Adeline. I don't know if there were other children. James Bell Sr. was an original settler of the Pittsburgh, PA area and is buried in Chartiers Cemetery, Pittsburgh, PA. Eight Bell brothers came to PA. James and John were the only two that stayed. The others were Samuel, Robert, Charles, David, Joseph and William. They moved to Harrod's creek, Ky and Harrison county, Ind.
1770, in the fall, George Washington, James Bell, Col. Crawford, and Dr. James Craih set out of Fort Pitt down the Ohio to the Great Kanawha river to survey land for the French and Indian War veterens.
