About Andrew Bell

http://genforum.genealogy.com/cgi-bin/pageload.cgi?andrew::beall::2109.html

This Andrew Bell has been purported to be a brother of the MD Beall brothers Alexander,James,and Robert.For lack of evidence other than a coincidence of first names this theory is doubtful.Here is something that throws more doubt on the story.On the paperwork that served as packaging/envelopes to his will and administration papers his name is spelled "Andrew Bell".Another clerk neatly transcribed his will spelling the declared name and signature "Andrew Bell".However,the administration papers written in poor penmanship by James Gibson has his name spelled "Andrew Beall",at first.Then,"Beall" has 5 diagonal lines drawn through it and "Bell" is written in next to correct his mistake.He made quite a few other errors on the page and corrected them with scribbles or lines drawn through them,also.At this point in time when all the Bealls were spelling their name as such,it looks to me as if he knew that Andrew was not a Beall, but rather a Bell.
