25802  Hubert Edgar Bell, Jr.  edelaine50@gmail.com 
descended from:
Nancy Lyons b ca 1803 (believed to have been unmarried mother of seven children).  Thru DNA evidence, at least one male child connects to William Lyon (no S). Son William H. Lyons b ca 1847 and dau Josephine Lyons b ca 1850 may be children of Thomas Payne, who was not married to Nancy.  Payne was a widower whose wife was named Sarah Lyons.
Josephine Lyons b ca 1850, was unmarried when son Thomas was born in 1878.  She also had dau Sarah V. b 1873.  In 1878 Josephine m Stephen Bell and children took the name Bell. 
Thomas Melvin (Lyons) Bell b 1868 Carroll Co., VA d 1917 Bonne Terrre, MO m Stella Jane Thomas b 1878 Washington Co., MO d 1932 St. Louis, MO
Hubert Edgar Bell b 1903 Bonne Terre, MO d 1988 St. Louis, MO m Frieda Augusta Scholle b 1905 Bonne Terre, MO d 1989 Dallas, TX
     Note:  Looking at the 1870 census for Carroll County, there were 6 Hanks families living at Fancy Gap, VA which sets atop a mountain above Lambsburg.  Several of these Hanks families had teen age sons, about Josephine's age.   It looks to me like all 6 of these families trace back to a Joshua Hanks and Ruth Bryant.  Joshua must have been born before the Revolution.  Would like to narrow the field of Hanks boys down some, but that may not be possible.
