You are probably thinnking of the Forest Of Friendship a sort of memorial park in the vicintiy of Acheson, Kansas, it is maintained largely by the 99"s the Women"s pilot organziation in part founded by Amelia.

Unconfirmed. It is understood her father, a purchasing agent for the ATSF railroad ( this may explain her predilection for Turquoise) was something of an alcoholic. He died around l935.
