Robert Simon Bell
The Marshall County Democrat, July 27, 1907
Mr. Bell died at his resident near Woodville Monday evening, July 23rd at 9:00 o'clock p.m.
Mr. Bell was born in Searcy, Arkansas, 56 years ago, he was the son of Rev. Robert S. Bell and Mrs. A.A. Bell who came to this country as Cumberland Presbyterian Missionaries in the early sixties, the subject of this sketch being then in his boyhood and he has lived here nearly all his life. He has been sick for about 2 years with progressive locomotor ataxia, and has been confined to his bed for 15 months. He professed religion and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in early manhood and has lived a faithful consistent, Christian life, and died happy; trusting in the Lord whom he had served so faithfully.
He had many friends in this country and Texas who will hear of his death with feelings of sadness, for he was a man, that to know him, was to love him.
He leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss. We can only say to them that he, God in whom he placed his trust is their God, and he has never yet forsaken the "widow and orphan".
The funeral was preached by Rev. McKinney of Kingston and the funeral services were conducted by Masons of which fraternity he was an honored member.
