need any information on the family of John Bell and Eleanor McEllhannon of Tennessee. John and Eleanor had the following children, alll born in Tennessee. Hugh McEllhannon Bell born in 1802 and married Elizabeth Sanders, and Samuel Peyton Bell who was born between 1814 and 1820, who married Mary Ann Sanders who was born in Rutherford in 1823. Mary is a possible relation to Elizabeth Sanders.
My line of research is on Samuel Peyton Bell. I know Samuel P and Mary had at least one daughter named Lucinda Eveline born in 1845 in Rutherford. I need to know if Samuel Peyton Bell and Mary had a son named Samuel (Peyton), born around 1843 in Rutherford.
This Samuel appears on the 1870 Census for Gibson Co., Tennessee with wife Matilda, born in 1843, and children Mary born in 1864, Margaret born in 1866, and William born in 1868.
Samuel then appears on the 1880 Census for Dyer Co., with wife Martha M, born in 1843, and children Mary born in 1864, Margaret born in 1866, William born in 1868, John N born in 1870, Fannie P born in 1872, Katie born in 1874, Martha M born in 1877, and Nancy L born in 1880.
I saw a posting several years ago that had a Peyton Samuel Bell, born in 1829 marrying a Rebecca Matilda Follis, born in 1832 in Madison County. They were married in 1862 in Madison. The poster had the same children listed from the 1870 Census I cited above. He also had Samuel's parents as Samuel Bell and Mary, both of whom were born in 1801. Can anyone provide further info on this family? I especially need to know if Samuel Bell and Mary Sanders had a son named Samuel.
