RE: James Bell
Source is Richard DeLauder (Compiler), "Cemetery Records of Knox County, Ohio, Volume 1," Knox County Genealogical Society, 1991; p 375.

There were at least 2 additional children from his first marriage (Rowena): Edwin W Bell (1842-1905; Memorial #70947586) and Rev Benjamin T Bell (1848-1927; Memorial #84751455).

There was at least one child from his second marriage (Phebe): Charles Sumner Bell (1866-1924; Memorial #76155408)

I'm not at all related. I do genealogy research focused on Knox County, OH.

Thank you for your work!

James Bell
According to cemetery records, James is buried at Fairview Cemetery in Knox County, not Hopewell. His second wife, Phoebe J (Wright) Bell is buried beside him.

Would you like to move his memorial or should I create a new one?

RE: Balcums
Hello,Janis,Thank you so much for the transfer of Samuel and Caroline Bolcum! My husband was born just outside of Redfield (Florence)NY. All his family is from the area on his mother's side of the family. He attended school in Redfield for a time. I have been to the area for family reunions. His parents moved to New England when he was about 11. I am certain if we were to walk through the cemeteries up there we would find many relatives. Again,I thank you for the transfers. Thanks for all that you do for Find A Grave! Blessings,Susan♥

RE: Memorial #88376853 George Lewis (1705-1795)
Thank you Janis for your reply. Yes, I was aware that anyone can add to a memorial without notification to the owner. I apologize if you felt that I implied otherwise. Kat indicates that she does not know where the photograph came from, she found it somewhere on Ancestry and attached it to your post. One of the reasons I hoped you might have other supporting evidence. It appears that you are well aware of the confusion and pitfalls associated with tracing the Lewis line. More than once I have abandoned that line and went onto another for a time. Look forward to hearing from you some time in the future. We come to WV every year for a family reunion, it would be a bonus to seek out George when we are next there. Sorry to hear about your accident; best wishes for a complete recovery. Perhaps we are cousins! A new avenue to explore.

Memorial #88376853 George Lewis (1705-1795)
May I ask the source of the information posted on this memorial. Like several others, I believe George to be my ancestor. However, a crosscheck of a cemetery survey done in 1986 by the Greenbrier Historical Society and the surrounding Blue Sulphur community, indicates there are only 13 souls buried at Caraway Cemetery -- none of them Lewis.

There are many George Lewises buried in Greenbrier County. Five in the Blue Sulphur district where Caraway is located. Four of them died much later than 1795. The only unmarked grave attributed to George Lewis in this district is at M.C.P. Cemetery (Muddy Creek Presbyterian).

What source did you use to determine that indeed George Lewis (1705-1795) is buried at Caraway? And the picture of the headstone added by kat -- if there was no marker in 2012 when you posted, where did it come from in 2014 when kat posted? Hoping to gain some clarity. Church records, family records, any secondary proof.

Lorena V Carpenter Shyers
Lorena was my great grandfathers 1/2 sister...I was wondering if you have any more info on her as I do not know who her father was. Also is there anyway you could get a picture of her headstone?
Thank you, Larry B.

RE: John P. Unknown
The first initial of the father is J. and it looked like the mother's first initial was J. too. Thanks.
