More About Ida Yates:

-- FACT #1 -: Ida Yates married W. E. Bell when she was 16 years old.  The family of Wilson Bell moved to Houston County about 1877 from TN.  It is very possible the Bell and Yates families left TN to TX at the same time.  Willie Bell and their infant daughter died about the same time, probably in a flu epidemic.

-- FACT #1b2 -: Ida Yates-Bell then married a Mr. Smith with a daughter; Mr. Smith abandoned Ida and his daughter, as well as their daughter (Della) after Della was born and diagnosed with a heart defect (hole in the heart).

-- FACT #2 -: Ida (Yates) Bell-Smith was in Galveston, TX at the time of the Sept. 1900 hurricane that almost destroyed the island.  She and her family left on the last train to leave the Island.  As the train was going toward the mainland, Ida could look out the back of the train and see the Gulf waters covering the tracks behind them.  She said they had no idea the storm would be so bad.  She was working at a sewing factory located in long metal buildings on the main road to the beach in Galveston.  They worked until it became apparent that they must all leave the Island.  She went home, and they waded water sometimes waist deep to her to get to the train.

Burial: Wesley Chapel Cemetery, Wesley Chapel Community, Houston Co., TX
