Family notes:
·         John Edward Bell: “During the Great Depression, no one except the very few had any money. It was just as well that by this time I was attending the public schools which required no tuition. ... Due to Mother’s loss of her inheritance from the Loftis plantation, and Daddy’s falling out with the Methodist Conference, family income was reduced to a trickle. Family history says that the family fortune was squandered by my uncle William Ward Loftis; who took over running the plantation after the death of my grandfather, Perry Loftis.”
·         John told many stories of his time in England during the war. He talked of taking the train to Paddington station, and visiting Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus when ever he had leave. There was a large USO facility with music and dancing at Piccadilly Circus. This is where he “danced with the Queen” (who was a Princess at the time.)
·         Johnny was a vital member of the Corinth community. He was the lead voice and spearhead for establishing the Corinth City Park. He was involved in the Corinth YMCA, later known as the Sportsplex, and was given a lifetime member award. He was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church, serving as member and/or Chairman of various church committees. He was the announcer for the annual Christmas parade from the beginning.
·         Virginia worked at WCMA radio for many years as receptionist and computer operator.
Children of John and Virginia:
