Sanders, Mabel, born 1894 and murdered in 1915 by Earl Sutton
Subject: Fairview cemetery
Date: Thu, 4 Apr 2002 22:45:06 EST

To whom it may concern,
  .... I had been told my great-granmother had been murdered in1915 in Rushville Nebraska. Well to make a long story short, I contacted someone at the city clerk who was gracious enough to furnish me with alot of information (she even went to the Fairview cemetery to gather information from the gravestone for me.)  My great- grandmother's name was Mabel Sanders born 1894 and murdered in 1915 by Earl Sutton (his name is on the gravestone.) My grandfather (her son) was only 6 months old and never gave any information about her or how it happened. I believe Earl was never charged? Do you have any information on her possibly an obituary, newspaper article, anything, anything at all.?
Also buried there are

Sanders, Walter H, age 11 in 1927
Sanders, Laura, 10/24/53
Sanders, Daniel, 9/2/45
Sanders, Sam, 1914
Sanders, Georgia Ann, 1929
Sanders, Edward M., 1925
(not sure how these Sanders folk are related) Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated,
