Includes information on the families of Bell, Allen, Campbell, Henderson, Murray and Reynolds.

There were four distinct Bell families that appear to have settled in early Augusta County, Virginia. These families were known locally as the Stone Church Bells, Long Glade Bells, North Mountain Bells and the South River Bells. While a number of descendants stayed in Virginia, there were those who traveled to Tennessee where a large number of Bells settled in Knox and Davidson counties. A smaller number of Bells settled in Blount and Washington counties. Descendants traveled further west and settled in Texas, Kansas and other parts of the United States.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
