Bio and Links
Just a lady who has always, for some strange reason, enjoyed the stories and the serenity of cemeteries--which in the long run will prove to be a good thing. ;-)

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members or friends of the deceased.

Belton Remembers
RE: Dixie Craycraft 113018011
Thank you for your good wishes! I am just doing my part, however, by sending a reminder of an unpaid debt. The response of the debtors is out of my hands. It may be good luck or bad luck but it will not be my luck. Again, thank you!

RE: Dixie Craycraft 113018011
Belton Remembers is an organization only in the very loosest sense. I and my wife started it with the hope that it would become a community project to honor Belton's veterans of World War I. (See Although we have had considerable support from individuals and organizations such as the Cass County Historical Society and the Belton VFW, the "community project" we had hoped for has yet to happen. But we are still more than a year and a half from the 100th anniversary of the United States entering the war so we remain very hopeful! :)

RE: 153120624 James Bartlow
I think that is a wise thing to do. It might also be worn down where it is unreadable. There were several like that.

RE: Thank you!
You are welcome. It happens to all of us from time to time.... I did a bio for the other one. Hopefully it is accepted as famous.

RE: 104755226 Caroll Ramsdell
My source was the census records of 1880, 1910 and 1920 for Carroll (or Caroll) B. Ramsdell in Milo, Maine. His daughter Nora married Percy Livermore Hamlin.

RE: 148661480 Carl Arvie Frants
Now I'm wondering when I called if I asked for just Carl Frants or if I used Arvie also.
Also, if you call the funeral home maybe ask if he was cremated. If so, his cremains may not have been buried. Or someone may have just buried him in one of the family plots w/o the cemetery's knowledge. that happened with another grave I was searching for in a different cemetery. the family had just gone and buried the cremains next to the daughter's grave and placed a stone there. The cemetery office did not know about it.
He died in Missouri?

RE: Hannah Rust 116387257
Hello, Kendall.
I have a copy of a family tree that was completed using a typewriter. I do not know the originator of the document; as it was passed to me from my Grandmother.

In it, Hannah Appleton (b.1616) was married to Henry Rust (b.1613).

Their children were:

Samuel b. 1638
Nathaniel b. 1640
Hannah b. 1641
Israel b. 1643
Benjamin b. 1646
Benoni b. 1648

Their child Israel is where my direct line is from.

RE: Emelia Niemi & Don Frants
I'm sorry I can't remember what Stephanie at City Hall said when I called. I just have on my notes "try block 9 lot 60". I know a did a different Frants earlier , either in the spring or last year. Can't remember first name. Will have to check.
don't know if you noticed I also photographed Harold Nobens stone. He is buried in same lot as Don Frants. So maybe a brother-in-law?
