Birth: 1867
Death: Mar. 12, 1873

Died at the Home of the Friendless at aged 6y 2m of smallpox.

Buried in the Home for the Friendless Memorial area of Block 4. The Home was founded in 1863, originally for Civil War widows and orphaned children brought here from Fort Smith, AK. Over 6500 hundred women and children passed through the home while it was in operation from 1863-1904. Burial land was donated by Oak Ridge and approximately 185 are buried in this section, most all in unmarked plots. The Memorial was established in 2008 and all persons that could be identified as having lived at the Home and were buried in Oak Ridge are listed on the wall.
