  • Note:
    Deforest Stull was, according to her, Grace H. Stull's "cousin", and we have pictures of them together when they were young. Late in life, she was a bit vague on details. He was about 10 year older than Grace, and so I never had the exact relationship until it was supplied by James Capobianco.

    It is reported that there "were lots of cousins".

      I have twice been to the family grave site in Belle Plaine. There is one large central stone. On one side (the North?) is carved the name Burrows. On the other side the name Blue is carved above the name Noble. There are three smaller stones to the North? and four in the opposite direction. All of the stones but that of Dr. Noble are of the same style. His is larger and simpler.
      <p>
      The cemetary records indicate that there are two unmarked graves in the plot--those of Thomas C. Blue and his wife Winnie Taylor Blue. It would appear that neither was cremated. Records indicate that Lowell, Wm H. and Alice were cremated, but Alice's grave is marked with wire as if her body were buried there.
      <p>
      The stones are arranged thus:
      <pre>
      EPN ABN JDB EAB
      Blue
      Nobel
      -------
      Burrows
      IBB WHB LAB (TCB) (WTB)
      </pre>
      The inscriptions read:
      <p>
      <center>
      Dr. E. P. Noble / 1868 - 1904 / At Rest<br>
      Alice Blue Noble / 1871 Peterson 1962<br>
      Father / John D. Blue / 1844 - 1930<br>
      Mother / Ella A. Blue / 1844 - 1939<br>
      Iona Blue Burrows / 1868 - 1936<br>
      William H. Burrows / 1865 - 1946<br>Lowell A. Burrows / 1891 - 1938<br>
      </center>
      <p>
      Iona's grave is also marked by two metal markers--one for the DAR, and one for the PEO.
      <p>
      We have since buried my grandmother, Grace, in her husband Lowell's plot.</div>
