Children with Margaret Elizabeth Bell:

• Alice Bell (b. 1882)
• Oscar Alexander (1884-1918) married Ella McLean
Oscar started west in the spring of 1850. He started from Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana, overland to Columbus, then by railroad to Madison, by steamboat to Louisville, Kentucky, and another steamboat to St. Louis, Missouri, then by another boat to Kansas City, Missouri, where his parents and family met him. It then took them nine months to cross the plains.
He had a gold stake for a while. Then he became a printer for several publications. He was the Deputy Collector of Customs at San Pedro and a member of the Los Angeles City Council. Macy Street in Los Angeles is named for this family, since the only house on the street for many years was the Macy’s house.
