Belle’s Box – 128

This entry is part [part not set] of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

Geo Love

The Loves were associated with Charlie Tinker, but I don’t have a lot of information on the relationship. There are some graves for people with the last name of Love near the lot on which Belle, Charlie, Henry Fellows, and the children of Belle and Henry that died young are buried. The marriage returns of Wexford County, Michigan record the marriage of Charlie and Belle. In that record, Charlie lists his mother as Mary Love, and his father as Dudley Tinker. A clipping of Charlies obituary says he was “an adopted child of the Tinkers”, and was born in Spencerport, New York.
