The Family of Jacob & Lydia (Fithen) Bell of Jefferson County, Ohio

Below is the family of Jacob Bell and Lydia Fithen as far as I've been able to discover them. They lived primarily in Jefferson County, Ohio. Some of the children passed away years after my mother was born in 1915, and yet this is a side of the family about which never a word was spoken, nor ever a visit was made.

The connection between me and this couple passes through my mother, Audrey Meinzen, and continues --> Emma Bickerstaff --> Mary Thompson --> Lydia Bell --> Jacob & Lydia (Fithen) Bell

It seems that the pronunciation of Bell sometimes migrates to Beal or Bale.

Since Jacob Bell, my ggggrandfather, was born sometime during the month of November in the year 1824, I'm remembering him and wishing him a happy birthday with this post about him and his family. Happy Birthday, Grampa Jacob.

  1. I have a Fithian family married into my Cooper/Griggs family. So I looked up my friend's family of Fithen and Bell.
