For others to help you... we need a base/place to start. I had to look your ancestry line up & found his profile: Abner Balder Robinson Bell. Bell-13439. Link:
Found a lot of Abner B Bells in Florida, Georgia, IL, Kansas, SC, TN and TX.

Do you have your Abner Balder Bell's birth year and location (state, county and city)?

My maternal grandfather was a Bell.

Would there be any additional info such as name of spouse, year and location of marriage; also, year and location of death?

Here is Abner s son I believe, birth year is off one year. Find A Grave # 47436878. Link:

 I have found that if you: (Build up),(work up to secure),( make more credible)  information around the person you are hunting information on, that you may suddenly find exactly what you are looking for. :)

This link  still helps me, maybe it will also help you :)'s_Dream_Source_Help_Page

Thanks John -- I updated the question with his particulars, I think this is what u meant by base/place to start.


Thanks John --  according to the gravestone I was off by one year on his birth but that's definitely him

Quick look in FamilySearch yields a 1900 census. Marriage to Martha about 1865. And, birth and parents in Tennessee.

Further search has a likely marriage to Martha Ann Randolph, 14FEB1865, in Tennessee.

The marriage image might yield parent info.
