Does anyone have any data on the David A. Bell that married Fannie Thaxton (Frances E. Thaxton)?Fannie was the daughter of John T. Thaxton and Elizabeth Weaver.I haven't found David and Fannie Bell in a census report but I found Fannie living next door to her parents in 1880 Ga. Census in Butts County, Coody's District.Fannie was listed as head of household and she was 37 years old and the line divorced/widowed was marked but I don't know if she was divorced or widowed.(does anyone know this?) and listed with Fannie Bell was her daughter, Joanna Bell, age 9 and her son, Riley J.Bell,age 8.
I found a marriage record for Fannie E. Thaxton.Said that she married on February 17, 1867 in Butts County, Ga. to David A. Bell.
I found a David Bell, age 28, farmer in 1870 Butts Co., Ga. Census with wife Elizabeth Bell,age 26, with daughter Annie Bell (which could be short for Joanna), age 5 and a son named John Bell (Riley's middle name could have been John) age 3 and another son named David Bell age 9 months old.But the thing with this is that the ages of the children don't match the 1880 Ga. Census with Fannie Bell that was next door to her parents with Joanna and Riley J. Bell.
Can anyone help me with this??I don't have anything go go on with this David Bell other than he was married to Frances (Fannie) Elizabeth Thaxton.
