LITTLE BELL
Closed are the laughing eyes,
   Beneath their curtains fair,
And round a marble brow,
   Soft lies the silken hair.

Stilled are the little hands,
   That clasp our own no more,
And still two little feet,
   That played around our door.

A little voice is hushed,
   That we had learned to love,
And now its music sweet,
   The angels hear above.

When first the baby come,
   We asked for her God's care,
And He hath sent His love,
   An answer to our prayer.

Our Father took her home,
   Up to His mansion fair;
We surely could not ask,
   More tender, loving care.

And yet we loved her so,
   'Twas hard to have her go
To seek a fairer land,
   And leave us still below.

We know she'll not return,
   But in that fairer home,
The little girl we love,
   Will wait for us to come.

Unfortunately, I had to decline your edit asking me to link her to her mother.

Although her mother's memorial gives the Country that her body is buried in, it is not specific as to location, i.e., cemetery, etc.

I do not link to memorials that are not specific as to burial location. The very nature of "Find A Grave" is so that family, etc. that visit the website can find the burial site.

If at some point you find the specific location of her burial, you may resubmit the request to link.

Arthur Kelly (Memorial #119946350)
Please correct the year of death for Arthur Kelly.

The correct date of death of Arthur Kelly is April 10, 1927. Not 1923 as shown in the memorial.

1927 is carved on the gravestone as the year of death.

Also cemetery records give the year of interment as 1927.

Thank you.

Edward M. Snell # 88638637
Looking for evidence you may have for a third spouse for Edward M. Snell (Anna Georgina Bly Lyons listed on Edward's Find A Grave page). IL Statewide Marriage Index does list marriages to Lula Proctor in Macon Co. and to Agnes Allen in Christian Co.

Edward is my grandfather's brother. Thank you. Jane Snell Copes

Mildred is buried with her parents. I started a memorial for her and transferred it to you so you can link her to her family.

Mrs Mary Dibble
On this memorial most of the information is missing. I have a Mary Dibble with the same death date, but the birth date is different. Dibble is not common such as Smith or Jones. I just want to be sure they are NOT the same person. Can you tell me where you got the information that is on your page. My information came from my Mary's daughter. I don't want to [o post my page if your mary is the same.

Hope you can help me figure this out.
