Mary Senior, sister of Isabella Senior, was born 1729, in Northampton Co., and died 1789 in Northampton Co. About 1646 Mary Senior married Thomas Bell, son of Thomas Bell and Mary Watson. Thomas Bell wrote his will 21 June 1772 and it was proved 11 Aug 1772, page 50, Northampton Co. wife, Mary, estate during her widowhood and to rent my lower plantation to my son, Robert and after his mother's widowhood to Robert forever.

Babel Scott wrote his will 13 January 1784 and it was proved 9 March 1784 See Wills, etc., 327, 1783-1788, page 71 to wife Mary the estate she had when I married her, with her paying her children their proportion of their Thomas Bell's estate, Then Babal mentions daughters he had by Mary Senior as well as his son. I must add that the children he mentions may have been by an earlier marriage. I shall follow this with the will of Mary Scott and this should clear up this issue. Babal mention son, Benjamin and daughter, Margaret Glanville (wife of Edmond Granville.) Wife, my son-in-law, Edmond Glanville, and friend, Robert Bell, Extrs.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
