She was the collector of all the Sinton descendants of the Colorado Springs to the early 1950's, and of Richmond, VA, Pottsville, PA, Louisville, KY, and other lines shown here between 1905 and 1950. Some lines have been updated, corrected, and augmented by people descended in these lines. She started when Walter Lyon Sinton arrived in (1905) town and looked up the name Sinton in the city directory, as he did in every town he visited during his many varied travels. He shared his information and gave Lulu the address of the contacts he had made. They worked together until WLS's death, then until the early 1950's she carried on. She and Ronald Greeves corresponded from 1934 concentrating mainly on the letters and combining the American lines and the Irish lines. Without "Granny" neither the letters nor the genealogy would have survived at all. Lulu (Bell) Sinton, is the only Bell mentioned in this file who is not one of the Quaker Bells of Ireland. Her family is in a different file.

Lulu Bell Sinton wrote a letter, 1931, addressed to: "Joseph Greeves, Flaxspinner, Belfast, Ireland" the answer to which made possible the combination of Irish Greeves family research with this branch of the O'Brien/Greeves/Sinton family information. This expanded the Sinton information already resulting from Walter Lyon Sintons visit in Colorado Springs in 1905 with a basic pedigree and much information of the existence of the Pottsville, Richmond and Louisville Sintons whom he had found on his travels in this country.

Ronald Greeves of Altona, Belfast, writes (1984); "Lulu Elizabeth Sinton (nee Bell) supplied most of the information regarding American Sintons and all that which refers to Sinton, formerly O'Brien. She died many years ago. It was she who collected, from various members of the family, the letters which went from John and Margaret (nee Sinton) Greeves to Anne (nee Greeves) O'Brien and family from 1818 to 1869." Without her efforts, neither the letters nor the genealogy would have survived in this country.

Lulu was active in the Women's Sufferage campaign, WCTU, DAR, Unitarian Church, visitation of the prisons, and the League of Women Voters. She was the collector of all the Sinton descendants of the Colorado Springs to the early 1950's, and of Richmond, VA, Pottsville, PA, Louisville, KY, and other lines shown here between 1905 and 1950. Some lines have been updated, corrected, and augmented by people descended in these lines.

Mrs. L. E. Sinton

Mrs. Lulu Elizabeth Bell Sinton, 92, died Friday morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Bell Willett.

She was the daughter of James Warren Bell and Martha Lynn Bell and was born May 4, 1866, at Martinsburgh, Iowa.

She was married Sept. 5, 1885, to Dr. William Kelly Sinton, who died Aug. 4, 1924.

Mrs. Sinton was the last living of 14 people who organized as Unitarians in Colorado Springs, a group which resulted in the present All Souls Unitarian Church.

She was president of the El Paso County Womans Suffrage League in 1893 during the campaign which resulted in granting the vote to the women of Colorado.

In both maternal and paternal lines Mrs. Sinton was descended from early American settlers from Scotland, England and Ireland.

For four and five generations these people continued as pioneers across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa and Kansas.

She was a member of Kinnikinnik Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution.

She is survived by three children, Mrs. A. M. Handke of Houston, Tex., and Mrs. Bell Willett and Dr. J. J. Sinton of Colorado Springs; nine grand-children and 26 great-grand-children.

The funeral will be private, followed by cremation, by Blunt Mortuary.
