Hello again Phyllis. I have some more info to share - we know now that Richard Bell's wife, Martha Campbell, actually married again after Richard died in 1883. In 1884 Martha married John ALEXANDER and that is the name under which she died in Oct 1898 in Coolhill, Co Tyrone. I have found no more children though which I think is a bit strange as her new husband was only 19 when she married him!! Anyway, I hope all is well with you. Unfortunately for us our beautiful city has been destroyed by 2 very bad earthquakes in Sept 2010 and Feb 2011 and with continuing aftershocks we are not very happy over this side of the world. We have had 10,000 aftershocks so that will give you and idea of what life has been like in the past 18 months. Things seem to have quietened down a little these past couple of weeks but we live on edge as we seem to get another big one just when we get complacent. Our family are fortunate to have all survived, while so many have lost loved ones. Our homes are all damaged but repairable so we are thankful for that. We have a very good system here where we have had earthquake insurance cover so it has made things easier, but no of course everyone is having problems reinsuring. Still, apart from that we are all well, as I hope you are.
Kindest regards,
