Henry Peter Bell was born in Maryland or Virginia around 1765, married a woman named Margaret Low, had a son, Peter about 1787, moved to a farm in Bellevue, Iron County Missouri, and died there about 1850.  He could be my 4th great grandfather and I am stuck finding information.  Thank you

Mr. Gill, thank you so much for your help - I have been stuck for a long time, and decided to look in another direction.  You have helped tremendously!  Carol
My mother's maiden name was Bell. Her Bell line traces back to western PA, then Monaghan County Ireland. It's thought that this line came from the south of England and are said to be undoubtedly Scotch. This is from the "Williams Family" book pub 1897, and they used the word, Scotch which today would be Scottish.
Thank you.  I will check this out.  We always thought our Bell's were Scottish, but I'm at a brick wall.  All this information helps - I appreciate it.  I have also found this information on Ancestry.com:   https://www.ancestry.com/media/viewer/viewer/9e5ccfa6-9a29-4850-8225-48d8de9fe568/3158031/7021935274    Sorry...I had trouble pasting the link to this comment.  I'm wondering if I'm having  "trade the kilt in for lederhosen" situation.....
