Hello again everyone,
Thankyou all so much. 
ShaunJ - I hadn't seen the newspaper clip before so that was interesting. I didn't sign up for the week free trial but  I think I could read enough of what they allowed me to see. Interesting that John J had only been in Tennessee a few weeks. Food for thought there.
Jamjar - I was aware of the son Thomas Joseph but other than a quick look I didnot persue him in detail as my initial interest lies with his brother Charles John.  More specifically with John Joesph and who his parents might be.  The death of John J is from a very secondary source in the form of a family tree. I have sent the owner a message and waiting on a reply.
aghadowery - no luck with the census in either country - the many different spellings for the surname may account for that. :)
Appreciate the help
Mary

Oh! Could I trouble you to see if there is a death notice in 1889 in Tennessee - a secondary source suggests he died of Pnuemonia in New York but the place name could be wrong.
Thanks

No I can't see anything about his death.

This is the text of the "Arkansas" item (August 18, 1884):

"Coming Well Recommended

Mr. J. J. Bellemore, recently of Hot Springs, Ark., has become connected with Newman's restaurant and saloon. Patrons of the establishment will find that he deserves the good name and recommendation given him in Hot Springs."


He wasn't the only Bellemore in Nashville around that time. There was Don (Donald Henry) Bellmore/Bellemore (also from Canada) and there's a marriage for a Dan Bellemore.

I can't find the births of Charles or Joseph in the Nashville records.

There's a John J Bellmore death in Cook County, Illinois (Chicago area) on 4 August 1889 aged 30. A Chicago directory for 1889 lists John J Bellemore keeping a saloon at 3758 State.
