Seeking information regarding Samuel and Ruthey Below and family. They gave consent on 08-01-1821 for their son William to marry Susan Vessels (daugh- ter of William Vessels) in Washington County, Ky. Their name appears as Below in the original record. Members of this family migrated to Daviess County, Ky. In the 1850 census, the name was spelled Bellow and later became Bellew. Would like to know where the Bellew family originated. In addition, I would like to correspond with anyone who has information on the Vessels family.
