Hi Lora, I am working on connecting the author of Where the Red Fern Grows, Woodrow Wilson Rawls. The search has led me to a Agnes Eliza Bell, daughter of Samuel Jacob Bell, who was a son of James Gray Bell, who was a son of James Bell and Sarah Kent. I see there is confusion there and it has really made my head spin looking at it. Just letting you know, thank you.
