Bell, Angus a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Scotland about 1827, of respectable, pious parents, who gave him a careful education. He spent several of his early years in marine life. Upon abandoning the sea he travelled through several of the Southern States, and finally settled at Evansville, Ind., where he was converted. Soon after he was licensed to preach, and labored as supply in various places in Indiana. In 1857 he entered the Kentucky Conference. In 1861 he was violently persecuted by secessionists, and his life was threatened; he therefore temporarily left his work. About this time he was attacked by hemorrhage of the lungs, and died Sept. 13, 1861. Mr. Bell was an excellent man, but subject to extreme elevations and depressions in his religious experience, though of unblemished character. He was somewhat eccentric, yet never offensive.
