Adaline was the oldest of the eleven children born to Robert Brooke Taliaferro and Cecelia Agnes Ellett. She was born in King William County near Richmond, Virginia. They relocated to Henderson County, Illinois by 1836.
On July 11, 1838 Adaline married William Henry Bell in Warren County, Illinois. They had 7 children: William H (1839-1892), twins Margaret Cecelia (1842-1908) and Robert Graham (1842-1914), Martha (1848-1918), Nadine (b. 1850) and Mary Agnes (1852-1916).
William joined the Henderson county men in going to California to try to gain their wealth during the gold rush days; in 1857 (per family records) he was returning from California on a ship which was attacked by pirates going around Cape Horn and he was killed and thrown overboard.
On September 16, 1858 Adaline married Joseph Hollingsworth (also his second marriage). They had three children: Jane Elizabeth who died in 1862 at the age of two; Brady Willits (1862-1941) and Joseph Grant (1865-1879).
