I move at a glacial pace... :-)
I wouldn't dismiss the Scotland Bells.
I'm sure your loyalist Bells were from the United Kingdom before they almost became American.
We share a family tie in the name McMaster. Glenn McMaster married Dorothy Jean Bell.
Glenn's family were potatoe famine Irish but the reason for coming here was to link up with Adolphustown McMaster's who were Loyalists from Massachusetts (did I spell that right?)
The potatoe famine was less than a generation away from the Revolution and the Revolution wouldn't be sorted out until the 1790's.
The land the Irish McMaster's would farm would be a loyalist grant in Pittsburgh township originally given to descendant's of the Adolphustown Loyalist McMasters.
Your Bells are of interest to me - I believe a Douglas Bell married a Veronica Doyle. This Bell would be the brother to Dorothy Jean Bell that married Glenn McMaster. I had met Dorothy Jean in 1992. Veronica Doyle is/was an aunt to the mother of my son.
Who were Veronica's parents?
My great grandmother was Martha McMaster.
Her father was William. Glenn McMaster is a descendant of William's brother, John.
---------------------------------------------
John Bell married Katherine Sharp Oct 24 1805.

Feb. 23 1794 Johanes SILL married to Isabel BELL both of Fredericksburgh. Wit: George Sill, Duncan Bell, Andrew Embury, Johannes Bench.
-----------------------------------------------------

(The McCorquadales were Scottish - could be Mom they questioned on the census)

You've traced your Samuel as father to John. I suspect tracing Samuel's father would involve going across the pond.
(Probably Scotland)

I'll see what I can find.

Warmest Regards
JM
