Bell, Jacob Coxon (1884-1917)

Jacob Coxon Bell was a clerk who lived at 1850 Alberni Street in the 1911 Canada census. He did not appear in the Vancouver directories from 1908 to 1915.

He was born on July 2, 1884, in Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland, England. His parents were Edward and Agnes Bell.

He had a sister named Isabella, who married Mr. Winter (possibly John Winter, in Castle Ward, Northumberland, in 1897). Isabella was living in Amble, Northumberland, in 1915.

Jacob arrived in Canada about 1902.

When he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in on December 23, 1915, he was living at the Badminton Hotel in Vancouver.

He died on March 5, 1917. He was buried in Bruay Communal Cemetery Extension in Pas de Calais, France.

It appears that he was not married, and that he had no children.
