Mary Bell burial

Mary, the youngest daughter of Ole and Mari was buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Everett, Washington next to her brother, Rasmus.

Mary had moved from Illinois to Washington sometime between the 1930 US Federal census and the time of her death in 1937.

Mary was born in 1859, not 1857; her brother Rasmus' marker also misstated his birth year.

According to the "family service advisor" at Evergreen Cemetery, Mary "was placed in the International Order of Odd Fellows cemetery in Marysville WA - she was disinterred in 1945 and placed next to Rasmus on the same day he was placed 09/07/1945.

They both are located in Block 49, Lot 144 - Rasmus on the right, Mary on the left."
