    • Their grave is at the Millersburg Cemetery, Pleasant Grove Township, Des Moines County, Iowa; memorial provided courtesy of No Reins. The epitaph on the stone is: "Beames. Joseph Henry, September 29, 1865 - October 17, 1935. Mary Belle (Perkins), Wife of Joseph, February 1873 - October 22, 1920"

      A headstone photograph was available online at the Find A Grave web site as of October 2012. The stone appears to be fairly recently added, and indeed there is no record of their burials at the Des Moines County, Iowa, cemetery information available online (the date the cemetery was "walked" and data gathered about burials there is unknown, but it was probably in the 1970s or 1980s).
