COURTHOUSE FIRE.

'''1891--'''The treasurer's office of the Bell County Courthouse caught fire, March 15, 1891.&nbsp; Probably arson. No record loss.&nbsp;<ref>GenDisasters.com Belton, TX Courthouse Fire, Mar 1891 http://www3.gendisasters.com/texas/7346/belton-tx-courthouse-fire-mar-1891</ref> <br>
 
 
Narrow Escape of Bell County's Capitol.
 
 
 
BELTON, Tex., March 15. - About 6 o'clock this morning fire was discovered in the county treasurer's office, which is in the north side of the courthouse. Prompt work by the fire department saved the building. The floor, walls, and furniture in the treasurer's office are badly damaged. Loss about $350. There is pretty strong evidence that oil was poured on the floor and the fire was started by incendiaries. No attempt seems to have been made to break open the treasurer's safe, hence it is believed to be the work of parties who wished to destroy the courthouse.

COURTHOUSE FIRE.  
 
 
 
Save of the County Treasurer Intact -
 
 
 
BELTON, Tex., March 16. -
 
 
 
The damage to the courthouse by the fire yesterday morning was covered by insurance in the following companies: North British and Mercantile, Western Assurance association of Toronto, Commercial of California, Germania of New York and Hamburg and Bremen of Germany. The loss will not exceed $400. The adjuster for the companies is having contractors make estimates for repairs to-day and will have the work done in a short time.  
 
 
 
County Treasurer W. J. Blair opened his fire and burglar proof safe this morning and found everthing in it intact. Not a cent of money was gone and his books and papers were not injured. The safe is smoked up considerably, but there are no indications whatsoever that any attempt to blow it open had been made.
 
 
 
Between the cages in the jail there is a hall, into which the prisoners are let once a day to take exercise and for other necessary purposes. When they were let into this hall last Saturday they declined to go back to their cells when ordered to do so by the deputy sheriff. They claimed to be afraid of small-pox. An extra guard watched them all night. However, when this conduct of the prisoners became known in town yesterday morning after the fire there was considerable excitement. Many persons believed that it was a preconceived arrangement between the prisoners and their friends on the outside to start a fire in town and that during the excitement the prisoners would escape. After a close examination no evidence was found that the prisoners had made any effort to escape. The action of the prisoners and the fire may have been a mere coincidence, though many persons think otherwise.

Church

Church records and the information they provide vary significantly depending on the denomination and the record keeper. They may contain information about members of the congregation, such as age, date of baptism, christening, or birth; marriage information and maiden names; and death/burial date and place. For general information about Texas denominations, view the Texas Church Records wiki page.


Court

Land

After land was transferred to private ownership, subsequent transactions, including deeds and mortgages, have been recorded by the county. You can obtain copies of these land records by writing to the county clerk at the county courthouse. For more information, see Texas Land and Property.

The FamilySearch Catalog lists microfilm copies of deeds, trust deeds, and mortgages of many counties.


==== Local Histories ====Local histories are available for Bell County, Texas Genealogy. County histories may include biographies, church, school and government history, and military information. For more information about local histories, see the wiki page section Texas Local Histories.

Maps

Military

Newspapers

Additional newspapers abstracts can sometimes be found using search phrases such as Bell County, Texas Genealogy newspapers in online catalogs like:

TX Newspaper Abstracts (For instructions see WorldCat Online Catalog).

Probate

Probate records of Texas have been kept by the probate clerk in each county courthouse. You can obtain copies of the records from the clerk's office. In most counties, all information pertaining to a probate case is recorded in the "probate minutes."

Content: Probate Records may give the decedent's date of death, names of his or her spouse, children, parents, siblings, in-laws, neighbors, associates, relatives, and their places of residence.

Record types: Wills, estates, guardianships, naturalizations, marriage, adoption, and birth and death records.

See the Wiki page Texas Probate Records for information about how to use probate records.

Taxation

Texas tax records complement land records and can be used in place of censuses or to supplement the years between censuses. Because only persons who owned taxable property were listed, many residents were not included in tax lists. There may also be gaps of several years in the tax records of some counties. For more information, see the wiki page Texas Taxation.

1846-1910 Texas County Tax Rolls lists FHL films with county tax lists. The lists vary by county and year. Most records are between the years of 1846 - 1910.

Vital Records

Vital Records consist of births, adoptions, marriages, divorces, and deaths recorded on registers, certificates, and documents.

Certified birth and death certificates or birth and death verifications can be ordered online or by mail at the Texas Vital Records State Department of Health. Copies can also be obtained from the County Clerk's office of the county where the event occurred and are often less expensive. You can also order them online through a third party company.

Marriages records can be obtained from the county the marriage occurred. Only marriage verifications can be obtained from the Texas Vital Records State Department of Health.

See Texas Vital Records for more information about Vital records in Texas.
