Boyfriend concocts creative engagement for archaeologist girlfriend in Steamboat "Arabia" Museum



KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Amanda Faith had told her boyfriend Adam McGrath she wanted a romantic proposal. And that's just what she received.

Mother-in-law-to-be Debbye McGrath convinced Faith she must see the Steamboat Arabia Museum because Faith had studied archaeology in college. The ship sunk in the 1850s. It was unearthed from near Parkville in the late 1980s and parts of the ship and its contents are on display in downtown Kansas City.

So yesterday she toured the museum with her boyfriend and his family. When they stopped at a place where artifacts are prepared for showing, Debbye McGrath mentioned that Faith had an archaeology degree. The lab worker offered to let Faith work on a cigar box.

Faith flipped the box open. Inside was a smaller red box with a ring inside. The couple plans to wed in May.
