Bell County, Texas Genealogical Records Information

www.mytexasgenealogy.com [cached]

Bell County was named for Peter Hansborough Bell, the third governor of Texas.Bell County was formed on January 22, 1850, and named for Peter H. Bell.In 1860, when a resurvey of the line between Bell and Milam counties was made and recognized by the legislature, Bell County assumed its present boundaries.The pattern of lawlessness continued into the mid-1870s; and the worst example of vigilante violence occurred on the evening of May 25, 1874, when a mob of men from Bell and other counties broke into the Belton jail and killed nine men, eight members of a gang of accused horse thieves and an accused murderer.One of the most interesting cultural movements of the period in Texas was the Belton Woman's Commonwealth, a celibate commune of "sanctificationists" that flourished in Belton from the 1870s through the 1890s. Before the Civil War, African Americans had formed some 21 percent of the county population.The difficulties they faced in finding a niche in Bell County society in the postwar period can be glimpsed in an 1868 description of the county's blacks by a former Confederate officer: "The negroes behave as well as any one expected, though a large majority of them ... are inclined to shift from place to place without having any settled employment."A statue of Peter Hansborough Bell, the Governor who created Bell County and its namesake, stands on the Southwest corner of the Courthouse square.Governor Bell was a San Jacinto veteran, Mexican War veteran, Texas Ranger, Governor, Congressional Representative, and later a Colonel in the Confederacy.The county seat, previously named Nolandsville, was changed to Belton due to a postal problem and is most likely a contraction of Bell and town.

Bell, Peter Hansbrough ( 1812 May 18?
BELL, PETER HANSBROUGH -- Born in Culpeper, Virginia, May 18, 1812, and was reared and educated there. Upon the organization of Hay's Second Regiment it was divided, part going to Hays in the army of General Winfield Scott and the remainder, under Lieutenant-Colonel Bell, was assigned to duty on the Rio Grande. In the election held November 5, 1849 Bell, then living in Washington County, was elected governor of Texas, defeating Governor George Thomas Wood for the re-election and John T. Mills. The vote stood; Bell, 10,319; Wood 8,764; Mills, 2,632. The President signed the bill September 7 and Governor Bell immediately called a special session of the legislature, which on November 25 passed a law accepting the proposal. In 1850 by a popular vote, Austin was chosen the capitol for twenty years. The places voted for were Austin, 7,647; Palestine, 1,854; Tehuacany, 1,143 and some scattering. Governor Bell was re-elected August 4, 1851 by the following vote: Bell, 13,595; Middleton T. Johnson, 5,262; John A. Greer, 4,061; B. H. Epperson, 2,971; Thomas J. Chamber, 2,320. In 1853 Governor Bell was elected to the house of representatives of the United States congress and he resigned as governor November 23, 1853 to take his seat. Bell was re-elected to congress in 1855. When his term of office expired, March 3, 1857, he married Mrs. Ella Reeves Eaton Dickens, daughter of the Honorable William Eaton, and moved to her home at Littleton, Warren County, N. C. In 1891 the Texas Legislature voted Governor Bell a pension. Mrs. Bell died July 16, 1897 and was buried in the cemetery at Littleton, Warren County, N. C. He died March 8, 1898 and his remains were placed in the same vault as those of his wife. Peter Hansbrough Bell
