Description Detail. Methodist Episcopal General Conference, held at Napanee, August, 1874

Rev. John D. Bell was born in about 1822 in Ontario. In the late 1860's and early 1870's, he was assigned to the Western Methodist (later, Grace Methodist) in the town of Napanee, where he was very successful in building the congregation. He and his wife, Mary Glasford, were much liked. His daughter, Flora, was born in Napanee in 1869 and the family is on the 1871 census for the town. Rev. Bell was later stationed in Grenville county. It is likely that he is the John Duncan Bell "Minister of the Gospel" who died there suddenly of a heart attack on February 9, 1881 at age 59.

The photograph is badly damaged in the area of this portrait.
