Hi Lynne, My name is Alan Scobie, I am the grandson of James Alexander Bell and Hannah Alberta Bell, of Wingham, James Bell was the son of John William Bell, and Mary Ann Bell ( McNeil ) of Laurieton, my family ancestry
goes all the way from Condong, Kempsey, Comboyne, Killabakh. I would love to have a talk to you some time.
Granny Bell was my great grandmother, my mother was Rosa Jean Bell ( maiden name ) who was the Daughter of James Bell, the son of Mary Ann Bell ( Granny ), His Father, my great grandfather, was John William Bell, Grannies maiden name was McNeil, I was present at the dedication to her, at the Laurieton Cemetery some years back now. Granny was a legend in her Lifetime, and still is, long after her death, I only wish I had known her, but I wasn’t born until 1942
