Elizabeth Tant & Thompson
I think, That this is Thompson Bell and Elizabeth Tant Bell, Thompson born 1803 &
Elizabeth Born 1809 in Richmond Co GA, Married abt 1835, Thompson 1st wife was
Mary Williamson from Augusta, Richmond Co GA.

This was a hard find and retouch, I think that this Is tom & Elizabeth because
these pictures belonged to my g gf Isaac Tant Bell and Elizabeth Rollins who
lived in Floyd Co GA and Polk Co GA and died at my gf place in Paulding Co Ga.

Thompson moved to Floyd Co GA before 1940, his sons moved to Rockmart, Polk
Co GA and were there in the 1960 census, his son my GGF was Isaac Tant Bell who
married Elizabeth Rollins in Floyd or Polk Co GA. My GF Edwin Adolph Bell was
found in the 1860 in Polk Co GA as a child. Ed married Elizabeth Hicks Bell and
moved to Paulding Co GA and lived in High Shoals community untill about 1940
where he moved to New Hope GA in Paulding co for the last 12 years of his life.

Ed and Elizabeth are buried in New Hope Cemetery in Paulding Co GA, Isaac is
buried in the Friendship ceme at the Friendship Church ceme on Braswell Mountain
Road in Paulding Co GA. between Rockmart and Burnt Hickory GA. Thompson I found
once is buried in Haralson Co GA. Do not know which ceme and could never find
this information again. Probably Haralson closests to Rome, or Rockmart Co GA
which is next to Haralson co ga.

I found where Thompson married a Sarah Cooper in Floyd Co GA, I think that this
was my Thompson.

If anyone knows whom Thompson Bell's Parents were and where from before Richmond
Co GA, I would appreciate you emailing me at [contact link] with
the information.

Thank You
