Mary Bell

Daughter of Abner Bell and Nancy Garwood.  Her mother died in Iowa in January 1850.  Evidence from census and genealogical records proves that the Bell family traveled to Utah in 1850. They appear in the 1850 Utah census taken early in 1851.  Mary married George Fawcett.  Further research is needed to determine the name of the company they traveled with.  Her death date is confirmed by her gravestone.
