Obituary from an unknown newspaper in Darke County, Ohio:

"John Bell died at the home of his son-in-law Elihu Clossen, near
Woodington, Ohio, April 29, 1890, aged eighty years and eight months.
He was born in Schuylkill county, Pa., in 1809 and came to Pickaway county,
Ohio, in 1825, and to Darke county in 1831. He was married to Miss Elizabeth
Riegle in 1832; nine children were the result of this union. His companion
died in 1850. He married Miss Rachel Cummins in 1853, and to them were born
seven children. He joined the Christian Church at Fort Recovery in 1858, and
was a devoted Christian to the day of his death. This wife preceded him to
the better land just two days. Services held from the old Teagarden
Christian Church; sermon by C. W. Hoeffer, assisted by Rev. Harry Lott."

(Note: some of the details in the above are probably inaccurate,
particularly the dates.)
