Bell Witch Character Biography

Lucy Bell (1770-1838)

 

Born in Edgecombe County, North Carolina to a family of wealthy planters, Lucy Williams Bell was a pleasant and mild-mannered woman who was nearly always on Kateís good side.

All throughout her reign of terror over the Bell family, Kate pretended to treat Mrs. Bell nicely -- singing to her, bringing her fruit when she was sick, and complimenting her kindness to others. The emotional damage suffered by Mrs. Bell, due to Kateís acts of physical abuse toward the rest of her family, most likely offset any false sense of benevolence that Kate displayed toward her. The mother of nine children, Mrs. Bell could neither read nor write, but was considered the voice of reason among residents of the Red River Settlement.

After John Bellís death and estate settlement, Lucy Bell inherited one slave, Dean, and a 106-acre tract of land that included the Bell home and cemetery. She remained at the old homestead up until her death in 1838. She is buried in the old Bell Cemetery near Adams, Tennessee, along with her husband and some of their children.
