Lorene,
Ck out Jim & Judy Snuck Montgomery site and see if this is your Bell family.

Looks like Benjamin Franklin Bell (your great uncle) was married twice).
Neva J. Cozort Hailey Dillard Bell and #3 were only married abt. 6
mo. (using the date of name change for her as postmistress).
See what you think.
I have 7 children and Jim and Judy list more than the 11 children referred
to in following obit. (I will do that too, thinking one of the children is
listed as a nickname).
