  • Notes 
    • Immigration: 1884 (source:
      1900 census, Trail Creek,Montana) Wife: Agnes.
      1910 census; Red Lodge, Montana. Married, but Agnes is not enumerated with family. Children, Charles and Mabel are listed.
      1920 census: Riverside, Gallatin, Montana. Wife is Hester. Children, Charles and Mable are listed, along with two Snowden children listed as lodgers.
      1930 census: Belgrade, Gallatin, Montana. Living with wife, Hester, and daughter, Mabel.

      On marriage license he states his mother was Margaret Littlewood. Littlewood was his grandmother’s maiden name. His mother’s maiden name was Orr.

      Note: I am confused about the wife/wives of Charles Henry Bell. It appears that he was first married to Agnes McCartney and then to Hester ___). The daughter Mabel appears to be the child of Agnes, however she is identified as the daughter (step-daughter?) of Hester in a census.
