Bell - Christopher genealogy
In Response To: William "Big Bill" Bell ()

Judy,
This is an amazing thread, thanks so much for maintaining it. I'm helping a friend of mine research her family history, and I'm not sure who would be best to contact. Her line of descent is:
John Nathan > Lee > George > Anna Belle.

Anna Belle was her great-grandmother and her descendants live in Detroit, MI. So far, I've traced the family through the 1870 to 1940 census. I was also able to find John Nathan (it seems he went by "Nathan") in a 1866 state census. I made the connection to the William Christopher family, and was able to match up Nathan's wife and children on the 1860 and 1850 slave censuses as well as trace William's family. William may have freed Nathan, but his wife and children still show as property of William as late as 1860.

In the 1840 census, I found William in Coweta County with his first wife and their first two children. At that time, William owned one slave: a female aged 10-23 years. Marinda would have been about 13 at the time. She indicates on later census records that she was born in South Carolina.
I'm trying to find out more about Marinda. I'd like to know where to look for records of sale. I thought Aquila Hardy may have purchased Marinda for William and Elizabeth as a wedding gift (to help with the children).

Do you know where to direct me, or if there is someone I can contact for more information?

Thanks, Cathy Dekker
