My GG-gradfather Lewis B. Bell married Jane Dearmond in Clinton, LA 2-26-1838. At some point, Jane died; Lewis migrated to Holmes Co., MS, and married Mary Nenette Barksdale, my GG-Grandmother 11-1-1869. Lewis was the son of William Henry Bell (7/15/1794 in VA - 3/29/1869 in MS) and Annis Davis, she of Amite Co., MS and dau. of Micajah Davis, from VA. I have some information about the Bell family in SW MS and LA, but haven't been able to establish concrete connectons between them and Wm. Henry in VA. If you have any leads, I would be happy to share information.
