1809 --- JAMES BELL ESTATE PAPERS --- By David B. Gammon ----- The following depositions were abstracted from the file of James Bell in the loose estate papers of Edgecombe County, North Carolina. This file contains three depositions relative to a suit brought by Joseph John Sumner against George Bell, executor of James Bell, deceased. Bell evidently prossessed a certain negro in dispute.

Deposition #1: July 25, 1809. Thomas Walk of Surry County, Virginia. Said Walk married Ann Holt, widow and relict of John Holt, deceased, in 1787 or 1788. She owned a negro, Charles, whom Walk believed was part of her dower from her former deceased husband, Michael Hill.

Deposition #2: July 25, 1809. James Simpson of Surry County, Virginia. Does not reveal anything additional to above.

Deposition #3: July 25, 1809. Isaac Hill of Sussex County, Virginia, basically agrees with the other depositions, but adds that Ann Holt was the widow of Michael Hill (father of said Isaac Hill) and she then married John Avery. At the death of said Avery, she married John Holt. ----- SOUTHSIDE VIRGINIAN VOL. 7, April 7, 1989, editors Lyndon Hart and L. Christian Hobbe, page: 70.

Added Information: Michael and Ann (Tyrus) Hill had a son named Michael. Michael was kill in the Revolution War at the age of seventeen or eighteen. In his will he left a negro slave to his cousin Bell, Bell's first name wasn't given. It is believe that the above law suit is about this slave. This is a document that names all of Ann Tyrus' husbands.
