Our 3rd great grandfather, William B Smith, died 25 Dec 1902. His funeral was held from the Methodist church in Staples. According to his obituary interment was made in the cemetery north of town. Evergreen Cemetery was searched and no gravestone was found. Evergreen cemetery has no record of William being buried there.
William and wife, Esther Amelia, homesteaded 160 acres (Twp 134 R 32 Sec 8) in Cass County 1892. Esther Amelia died 1896-1899 and is thought to be buried possibly in or near Becker. Does anyone have access to cemetery records in that area? Possibly both Esther Amelia and William are buried there?
