Spirit's Edge Shamonial Temple says
Saints/Sinners and other Notables of Bellefontaine Cemetery - The era in which we live may impact the definition of a Saint or a Sinner. For example, Virginia Minor worked most of her life to make the world better for others. During the Civil War she worked with the St. Louis Union Aid Society-a precursor to the American Red Cross. Later she would strive to secure women the right to vote. At first, Virginia tried using the 14th Amendment to vote in the Presidential of 1872. Moving forward she would be a Suffragist for the cause. In 1894 at the time of her death, no clergy would officiate since Virginia was disrupting the nature order of the times! Learn how others in their time may have been classified and how we view their lives today.
