I check the burials for people, I often check other records to verify
relationship, including marriages. I have listed the marriage of Preston and Sarah, in case you don’t already have
it. Sarah, according to the cemetery record, is the sister of William. This
family is found in the 1850 census in Mt.
Sterling, Brown County.
After checking our own census and the same one from Ancestry.com we have
discovered that we made the same mistake they did when we transcribed this
family. We misread Sarah’s age as 77, when (as we now look more
carefully) we can see it is 17. This is definitely your Sarah Queen, b. 1833 in
Her parents are Richard and Elenor, and her brother
William is 9. If you go to the page (http://www.rootsweb.com/~ilbrown/1850_Census/Brown_County_1850_Census191.html#fam8)
before tomorrow you will still see her listed as age 77, but by Monday this
will be corrected. Ancestry.com, however, will still have it as 77, and the
town as Westerling – so many errors!
pages 471-472 there is a Bell
family listing. According to this record, Preston was the son of James Bell (1803-1841) and Ann
Lester. James was the son of Robert Bell (b. 1772 Virginia – d. 25
Sep 1858 Missouri Twp, Brown co, IL)) & Jane Anderhan/Anderson
(b. 1780 PA). their known children: Catherine (b. 1797) md. Thomas Beard; John (1800-1882) md. 1) Elizabeth Miller, 2) Elizabeth Carter; James
(1803-1841) md. Annie Lester; Ira
(1808-1876) md. Eliza Jane Smith; Sarah
(1810 - ?) md. George Simmons; Richard (1812
- ?) md. Winifred ___; Patsy
(1817-1892) md. Ichabod
Perry; Emily (1818-?) md. Calvin Hurst;
Rebecca (no dates) md. Rodney Porter.
you want the details of this listing, I can scan the two pages and send them to
you. Just let me know.
let me know if I can be of any further help.

I see Sarah (Queen) BELL is listed in the
Cemetery Look up's as on pg 206, along with a Preston
and a Mike.
Would very much appreciate information concerning their burial
information, if at all possible.
Thank You very much, for your time and help,
