Original Bible Entries of Joseph Bell
Note from Clint Williams, who submitted this article:  "This bible belonged to my great, great, great, great, great grandparents, Joseph and Jane Bell.  I believe it has been handed down through the family as follows: 'Joseph and Jane Bell ' Rebekah Bell Rafferty ' Joseph Rafferty, Jr.' Rebecca Rafferty Williams ' Charles F. Williams ' Harry Williams (my grandfather).  I received it when grandpa Harry died.  It is my desire that it be passed on to my nephew, Brian Paul Knight, son of David and Nancy Williams Knight and the oldest grandson of my dad, Clifford M. Williams.  [Information Garnered from Champaign County Genealogical Society Newsletter Volume 18 No 2. April/May/Jun 2002; transcribed for Genealogy Trails by
