LAWSON REVIEW - 01-17-1918
The community was saddened by the sudden death of Mrs. Belle Arnote, of Liberty, widow of the late Allen Arnote, formerly of this place. Funeral services were held at the Baptist church in Polo, and interment was in the Prairie Ridge cemetery.

LIBERTY ADVANCE – 01-18-1918
Mrs. Belle Arnote, 54 years old, was found dead at her home at Missouri and Brown streets, Saturday night, by neighbors who had seen nothing of her during the day. As there was no sign of life about the house, J. D. Wason and other neighbors went to the home to investigate. Being unable to get any response to their calls they telephoned T. M. Arnote, a stepson, and forced their way into the house at his request. Mrs. Arnote was dead when they found her and from appearances had passed away some time during the day or previous night. She had been in bed but when found was lying on the floor, as if she had tried to call assistance, but death had overtaken her before she could do so.

Mrs. Arnote was born March 9, 1864, and was the daughter of Frank and Sarah Potter, of near Polo, Mo, in which place she lived before coming to Liberty. She is survived by one son, Judson C. Arnote, of Kingston, Mo., and by a stepson, T. M. Arnote, of Liberty. Her son, Judson Arnote, is sheriff of Caldwell county.
Mrs. Arnote had not been in the best of health for some time, but her condition was not one to cause alarm on the part of her children. She owned the house where she lived and preferred to stay there alone. Her neighbors had seen her often during the week, but when nothing was seen of her on Saturday and no smoke issued from the chimneys, they began to think that she might be sick and investigated, with the above results. Funeral services were held Monday morning in Polo, and interment was in the cemetery at that place.
