      2nd Source: 1895 Iowa State Census lists Margaret Bell as age 52, widowed,
      from Ireland, Religion Presbyterian.

      Name: From Bernie Christensen records. Originally, Bernie gave us the name as Margaret Morgan or Sparrow. On Feb 2, 2006, he sent us an e-mail that corrected this name to Margaret Martin, as follows: "I found an old marriage record for Adam Bell in the Lee County Court House in Keokuk, Iowa. He married a Margaret Martin on January 15, 1850 in Keokuk, Lee County, Iowa. There was no other information about the marriage. I talked to the daughter of Beatrice Walter who put together the document about the Bell family. She said that the names of Morgan/Sparrow were crossed out and the name Martin written in her mother's copy. Beatrice must have found the same information late in her life."
