Rosa Bell McChristian Teem has been found thanks to Janie Ralls.
She is the daughter of Eliza Jane Isabell McChristian, oldest daughter of Robert Monroe McChristian and Rachel Parker.
Rosa Bell was born out of wedlock about 1873.According to our family notes Rosa Bell's father was a seaman and was planning to marry her mother but he died at sea.
Rosa Bell told her family that her last name was Withers (other variations: Wethers, Weathers), which is probably the name of her father.Only after her death was it revealed that her real name was McChristian and her mother never married.
Rosa Bell married John Henry Teem and had many children. They are buried at Wilburton, Oklahoma.
