Lilian Bell, 1899

Lilian Lida Bell (Mrs. Arthur Hoyt Bogue; 1867–1929) was an American novelist.

Lilian Bell was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1867, but she was brought up in Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated from Dearborn Seminary, Chicago. Her father, Maj. William W. Bell, served during the American Civil War, and so did her grandfather, Gen. Joseph Warren Bell, who, though a Southerner, sold and freed his slaves before the war, brought his family North, and organized the 13th Illinois Cavalry. Among the Virginian patriots at the time of the American Revolution was her great-great-grandfather, Captain Thomas Bell. In May 1900, she married Arthur Hoyt Bogue of Chicago, and they moved to Applethorpe, Tarrytown-on-Hudson, New York.[1] Her works include At Home with Jardines, Hope Loring, Abroad with the Jimmies, The Interference of Patricia, A Book of Girls, and The Lilian Bell Birthday Book.[2]
