Are you descended from James Walker Bell's son Harold Walker Bell? I don't have any descendants for him in my database, so I'd be interested in exchanging info. w/ you.
My husband is a direct descendant of James Walker Bell's oldest sister Elizabeth Jane Bell, so you're not that far removed from each other.
Hope the information I provided was helpful - I have more info. going back further if you're interested.
