Tombstone Tuesday: Baby Richards



Baby Richards, child of Frank Richards and Elizabeth Hodges, is buried right next to the mother Elizabeth. The sex of the baby unknown. It is unclear if the baby was a twin to his/her sister Genevieve Alice Richards who was born 25 February 1915 or if he/she was lost later in that year.

Not satisfied, I called the Crown Hill Cemetery to see what information I could find. They told me that did not have a "Baby Richards" on file but they did have a Frank Richards born 1915 and died 1915. Any other information was non-existent. I asked where Frank Richards was buried and it turns out to be right next to Elizabeth Hodges Richards. So in conclusion, I am going to make a bit of a leap...Baby Richards in the picture above is actually Frank Richards in the cemetery records.
