Like others have written, it is not heavy on Bellefontaine history and photos. However, I choose to read this because of the history and funny stories of our city/state and view Bellefontaine as a "common denominator".
My forebears are in Bellefountaine and I visit often to commune with them and the environment of the landscape of the burial grounds. More attention could/should have been paid to the physical presentation of the cemetary, as well as some of the families there who did not present as movers, shakers, nor scalawags or suffragettes. In addition, the challenge of maintaining the physical setting, throughout the decades might have been appreciated, as it has been affected by some of those beneath the ground and their families, movers, shakers or not.
