Rosamund Preston Bell

Capturing Bell

Erskine Preston Caldwell took the name Preston from his mother. In looking at Caroline’s genealogy, I see no connection to the Preston family. Is it possible Erskine fabricated his linage to the Prestons who are kin to royalty. Either way, it works for me, because Caroline was called…….Bell. Here again is the Legend of Sleeping Belle that Grimm called Rosamund. Consider my muse, Lara Roozemond, which is also Rosamund. Consider Victoria Bond and Rena Easton. Consider Belle Burch. Consider….Royal Rosamond Press!

And they came for him, all this ugly misshapen folk who Cardwell defamed. They came to his abode with torches and pitchforks. They were hell bent on destroying his claim that he was in love Fair Rosamond.

“You are not worthy to love Belle. For inside….you are a monster, a beast!”

“Get off! Get off this acre that God gave to me! How dare you pick my roses!

Caldwell was born on December 17, 1903, in the small town of White Oak, Coweta County, Georgia. He was the only child of Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church minister Ira Sylvester Caldwell and his wife Caroline Preston (née Bell) Caldwell, a schoolteacher. Rev. Caldwell’s ministry required moving the family often, to places including Florida, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina. When he was 15 years old, his family settled in Wrens, Georgia.[4] His mother Caroline was from Virginia. Her ancestry included English nobility which held large land grants in eastern Virginia. Both her English ancestors and Scots-Irish ancestors fought in the American Revolution. Ira Caldwell’s ancestors were Scots-Irish and had also been in America since before the revolution and had fought in it.[5]
