Bell, Walter A
Bell, Walter A.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in 1830. He received a careful religious training, and spent most of his youth in Claysville, O. He was converted at his father's family altar. Being poor his literary advantages were very limited, and to remedy them he, after toiling hard all day, pushed his intellectual labors far into the night. He was duly licensed to exhort and to preach, and finally entered the Pittsburg Conference, in which he labored as his health permitted until his decease, April 22, 1859. Mr. Bell was a Christian gentleman of the finest sensibilities and most approved manners. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1859, p. 117.
