Hello Dawn,

Good to hear from you, our family thought a lot about you during the earthquakes. I am so happy to know that you are well but, sad to hear of your circumstances. I just can't imagine it all. I live in Naples, Florida now, moved here about three years ago. Thanks for the new information,I will add it to my project. I also have found more information on my GG Joseph Bell. Remember how perplexed I was that I could not find his death cert. It was a mystery.
I complained to a cousin about this and she told me a story about JB and that he worked for Carnegie in Gary IN. I checked the death certificates there and sure enough, he died in IN of an illness and he came home by train and was buried in our family plot in Philadelphia. You can read the story on my Family Tree under JB. I also just came across another mystery that involves a Richard and Laura bell????? I will send you the links to the documents. And I am still looking for information on Maude Bell buried with Joseph and Hannah Bell. I am told by my cousin that Joseph sent a ticket for his mother to come to the US and she(his mother) sent her daughter Maude instead. As the story goes JB was angry for quite awhile after.
I am happy to hear from you, and if you ever have the opportunity to visit the States please let me know. Lets keep in touch. Our prayers are with you.
Phyllis
