Alexander Bell (California merchant)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alexander Bell (1801–1871) was a Los Angeles, California, merchant both before and after that city became a part of the United States. He was elected to the first Los Angeles Common Council, the city's governing body, on July 1, 1850, but resigned on September 26 of that year.[1][2]

Bell was born in Washington County Pennsylvania on January 9, 1801, and in 1823 he emigrated to Mexico, where he lived until he came to Los Angeles in 1842. Two years later he married Maria de las Nieves Guirado Botello.[3]

Bell took an active part in the Californians' revolution against Manuel Micheltorena in 1844. He was also a captain in the California Battalion during the Mexican–American War.[2]

In 1845, he built the Bell Block on the southeast corner of Aliso and Los Angeles streets. It was also known as the Mellus Row and was for many years a notable landmark, where John C. Fremont established his headquarters when he was governor of the territory in 1847. Bell also built a warehouse in San Pedro.[2][3]

Bell died in Los Angeles, California on July 24, 1871.[2]
