I have taken another look at the Bell family census records in Wick for 1851, 1861 and 1871. In 1851 there was another daughter, Margaret aged 7, giving a birth date of about 1844, but she was not with the family in 1861, maybe working elsewhere. But 'Margaret Bell' is named on the same gravestone as William (her father?), Ann (her mother?) and George (her brother?). Margaret Anderson Bell died 11 June 1866,age 23, daughter of William Bell and Ann Young Barclay.
