Belle’s Box – Who Are They?

This entry is part 47 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Here are the mystery names which appear on items from Belle’s box.  This list is of people for whom partial information can be found by studying the items from Belle’s Box.
Keep in mind that not all 400+ items have been transcribed to date, and perhaps more information about the people on this list will be found. If the people are identified by later items, and if so I will add them to the “Cast of Characters” post, and delete them here.

In the meantime, if you can identify these names associated with Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker, Charlie Tinker, Wexford county or Newaygo county Michigan, please contact me.
