Vera, it looks as if you have found Adley's mother, father, and step-mother
in this cemetery.
I found them in the 1900, 1910, and 1930 censuses and then I had to quit.
>From what I have found George W Bell was Adley's grandfather
And George Lester Bell was Adley's father.
You had a question about a Leannah Hand yesterday or so.
I don't know who she is/was.
Remember, the L I Rand in Hand Cemetery is Leannah (Russell) Rand.
And, she's a daughter of John M Russell and his first wife, Leannah Ino van
Hook, and as far as I know, she died in NC, and he married Delpha in NC then
came to Arkansas.
I got information today about Russell DNA. I know such a little bit about
it that I'm a bit jumbled up but thrilled to get it! Others in my Russell
line have had it done so this guy sent me info from their info!!

This cemetery is located in Baxter County, you have to go into Fulton County
turn on a gravel county road and it becomes Baxter again. This is one of the
many cemeteries moved when the Norfork Dam was built in the early 1940s.
Being in the corner of near the Fulton & Izard County lines I think I would
also check Fulton County.
