Re: Graham Bell family of Petersburg, VA
In Response To: Re: Graham Bell family of Petersburg, VA ()
Was doing research on the web and stumbled across this post. I am researching the merchants that owned and emancipated Mary/Polly Bee/Bowler (her [I think] sister Lydia) and her children.
I don't have a lot of info, but I may be of some help. I can probably shed some light on the use of the name Miller, and would like to talk about the origin (if known) of their surname Bell.
