I am searching for information on my great grandfather, David Patterson Bell of Newtownards, Northern Ireland. He was born in approx. 1883 and died at the Battle of Somme on July 1, 1916. His gravestone is in Movilla Cemetary, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
He was married to Margaret (Maggie) Swann on April 27, 1911.
They had 4 Children, David, Thomas, Elizabeth, and James Swann Bell (my grandfather).
He was sometimes known as David Bell Patterson as well.
We believe he may have worked in Pennsylvania, USA at some point but have no more information on this.
If anyone has info on when he may have entered or left the United States or any information about his parents, especially his father I would very much appreciate it.
