Does anyone have any info on Mourning Glory Tullilove, who was the 2nd wife of Joseph Abner Bell?

+3 votes
My G-G-Grandfather Joseph Abner Bell, had 2 wives. The first was Nancy Carrie (Allen) Bell & the Second was Mourning Glory Tullilove, who was possibly born in Kentucky but she & my grandfather moved to Kinumundy, Ill. after marrying & having Twin boys. After moving to Ill. they had a daughter.

It's said that after moving to Ill. no one heard anything about the Twins.

They might have died or when grown, they could have moved to OK.

I need help finding info on this part of my family.
Also info on Tullilove.
Can someone help?

Dear Beverly,

   Here is a record of the Tullilove-Bell marriage in KY in 1861:

"Kentucky, County Marriages, 1797-1954," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 30 November 2016), Joseph Bell and Mourning W. Tullilove, 01 Dec 1861; citing Liberty, Casey, Kentucky, United States, Madison County Courthouse, Richmond; FHL microfilm 1,942,721. 

   Next I'll check the 1860 census.  -NGP

Dear Beverly,

   It seems likely that Mourning's surname was actually Fullilove.  Here is the death record for a son which says she was born in Indiana.  Son Jesse's death was much later than her birth.

"Illinois Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947," database, FamilySearch( : 27 December 2014), Mourning Fullilove in entry for Jesse J. Bell, 27 Jul 1936; Public Board of Health, Archives, Springfield; FHL microfilm 1,766,166.


No obvious connections in the 1860 census that I see. -NGP
