Hi. I am just beginning to look into the DeBell family. I come from a branch in New York but I live in Virginia where I have run across a lot of Debells in Centreville, Virginia. There is a very large book available on their history as decendants of John DeBell Virginia circa 1700, one of a group of Hugonots brought over to Manekin, Virginia in 1670 or so. Their line stretches into Kentucky, Ohio, Utah, and the Northwest. The current matriarch is a woman named Matilda Debell of Centerville, Va. She is in the phone book.
