I think this must be him.
He seems to be
a) probably a bigamist
b) economical with the truth
He claimed to be born in Canada in the UK 1861 Census.
He also worked as a draper in the UK and Australia before becoming a farmer but that is feasible.
But the W T Bell fact confirms it must be him.
see below the family tree to understand.
What I am not sure about is how W T Bell would know about the property in the USA but I assume he was still in contact with his father.https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/tree/156537662/family
