The following information contributed by Ginger Peckham:
Gibbs was her stepfather. She is the daughter of Edward Eber and Abigail Mellon and she was born in either Van Buren or Berrien County Michigan not Iron Mountain, Dickinson County. She did live in Iron Mountain from about 1885 to 1896/7. I have been tracking Belle for many years as she was the 2nd wife of my great great uncle Sullivan Felch. Sullivan was murdered in WI in 1889. Belle left Iron Mountain where she was a saloon keeper around 1896 and moved to CO where she married Alfred Bush. She and Alfred moved to Carey Idaho by 1910 and he was murdered in 1918. Belle moved to Oregon sometime after 1920 according to her Widows Pension that she received off Sullivan's Civil War service.
