I have had trouble finding the right John Hancock. I have listed his dates from 1760 - 1835. The real confusion comes his wife or wives.

This was the only indication of her mothers name at familysearch.org

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:1:9MXH-3PV   Mother: Priscilla Bell

Since the Ancestral File submissions are not verified, you may want to double check this one for accuracy.

Thank you for the information. It is close to what I have. I have also found a John Hancock 1767 that also has a wife Priscilla Bell. I have not been able to verify they are the some or not.
My mother's maiden name was Bell. One of her ancestors named Walter Bell lived in Emyvale, Monaghan, Ireland before coming to America. His ancestors came from southern England and were thought to have originally been from Scotland. In about 1768 Walter Bell and several offspring came to North Carolina where descendants lived for over 100 years.

Walter's oldest son, my ancestor, moved from Ireland to Western PA.
