Bell, Robert (2)
Bell, Robert (2), an English Congregational minister, was born at Colne, Lancashire, July 11, 1806. He early became a Christian, and, showing unusual abilities as a public speaker, he was introduced by his pastor to Airedale College, where he made preaching his special study. His health was delicate, yet he settled at Stainland, and remained there eleven years, infusing new life into the people, and augmenting the Church both in numbers and in spiritual power. He subsequently labored at Sowerby Bridge, Brighouse, Salterforth, and Huddersfield, where he died, Dec. 12, 1869. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1871, p, 304.
