Joe and Rose's daughter, Mabel, was called Belle but she lived in South Bend. I think that Rose and the children were visiting Rose's sister, Xenia Belle Graham Gallup, in Pokagon, Cass County, MI. Belle was married to John S Gallup and they had no children. They are buried in Silverbrook Cemetery, Niles, MI with Belle's mother, Elizabeth Doughty Graham.
