Bell Cemetery

The story of the Bell Cemetery is that the Bell Family marked off a corner of their farm for a cemetery. Any relative could be buried there. Also, anyone in the community that could not afford a plot or funeral could use it. The land belonged to Roy and Mary Bell. They, however, are buried in Fairview Cemetery, Smith Center, KS. It is assumed that Roy and Mary thought that after they were gone the cemetery would be abandoned. Roy did want his daughter Katharine Bell Heide and her cousin, Dorothy Lee Cochran Chase to assume the care for the cemetery. However, due to the ill health of these women, it wasn't possible for them to do so. Roy's son, Roy Dean Bell, has assumed the care of the cemetery and may now receive a stipend from Smith County for the care and upkeep of the cemetery.
