William and Margaret left Ireland with their son Hugh Shaw Bell, Hugh being the only child to be born in Ireland, other children appear to have their births registered in Whitehaven Cumberland. other children agnes, margaret, Isabella, William John. HUGH married Eliza Morrison (24 Auburn st Belfast) in Christ Church, Church of Ireland 20 December 1919. their children William (Bill) Isabella, Maureen and John, who was a photographer with the Ulster Star newspaper. AGNES married William Stephen Foster I think in 1918 I also think that the marriage was registered in Whitehaven I also believe that william Stephen Foster was connected with the iron ore mine. children of Agnes and William Stephen Foster, Gladys,died of TB 1946, Leslie, Margaret(Pearce) George 4/8/1921 - 14/2/1997 (Ipswich QLD Australia) May(Green) MARGARET married Ernest W. Whitehead known as Harold, I think they had 2 sons Gunston and Norman. I know next to nothing about this family. WILLIAM JOHN I have no information about him at this time. Hugh Shaw Bell travelled to New York via Ellis Island in 1910 on the white star line ship Arabica (sister ship to Titanic) and returned on the same ship in the same year as a third class passenger. In the USA he stayed with his Uncle, Andrew Bell, who MAY have been a publican, Hugh was listed as a bartender and US citizen. How he became (or claimed)a US citizen before his arrival in New York I do not know. If anyone has any further information on this family, I would be most greatful. because Bell is such a common name my search has been difficult.
