      In England there is a church to the North of Newcastle upon tyne with a 15″ diameter bell.

      Incised deeply into the bell is the following inscription –

      ILLINOIS

      1921

      The inscription would make one think that it was from an American ship even though there is no known link.

      Does anyone have any ideas

      Since you didn’t quote any maker’s inscription, should we assume that the bell is anonymous? A photo might help to determine whether it came from an American bellfoundry.
