thanks. you know i feel the same way about meeting new family. i recently found out i had cousins right here in the county and didn't realize i was kin to anyone else but my husband and kids. when ever i get up a new family member on the family tree its like meeting someone new, silly i know but its exciting to think these ppl walked this earth before i was even thought about and their blood runs through me so to speak. i also I'm having a bit of trouble with his company and infantry because there were 3 with the same name as him. David Bell. i believe however he was in the 54th and a wagoner. i think they have his day of death wrong as well because thats the day he enlisted, if i am correct. any more help you could give me i would be grateful for.

Hey Tink, my Mom lives there in B-ville still and has been working on our family for about 13 years and could probably give you some pointers on where to do some checking on getting info on your GGGrandfather. You can email me or my sister (you got the B/W rat terrier from my sis) if you like.
My email is on my profile page.

Still goto the library and talk to Joyce Stover. She is a wealth of information about geneology, not just locally. I'm sure she could give you guidance to access many online references that many people would not know. And she is a great person also.

The library has a wonderful collection of death records, census and is one of the best in the state. Geneology is fun and it is interesting to know just who all we are kin to. But beware, you might find out you arent who you thought you were.

I get lots of my genealogy info from www.rootsweb.com . You might find something on there that would be helpful. It's free.

hey, i just thought of something.

the library in glasgow (i can't remember the name of it) has a link on it's web site that goes to a family history site. because the library pays for the sites services, it doesn't cost anything. it's a great site, too.

well i want thank you all. thanks to your help i now have ALL kinds of info on the Bell line. We came from Ireland even thats just too cool how you can find anything on the net if you know where to look. however i still haven't found the grave of my gggrandfather David Bell, that may stay the family mystery. Let me thank you each and everyone again.

I have been doing genealogy for years and spend a lot of time at the library there,working on my husband's lines. That is a tiny library,but is absolutley one of the best for genealogy. Not only is there a lot of info,but the people are ever so friendly. Joyce Stover does a great job with her Roots and Branches column in the paper there,and also has some books out. She is the best. Can not reccomend her information highly enough,plus she is just a great lady. Does anyone have Tweedy,Ballard,Young,Murphy,An derson,Norris,Pennington,Taylo r,or Scott in their lines? Would love to talk to them. Also does anyone remember the Tweedy family down there?
