Birth: Dec., 1916
Halifax
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: Dec. 6, 1917
Halifax
Nova Scotia, Canada

Lillian Carson, 11m, was a victim of the Halifax Explosion. She was killed in her home with her mother and two younger siblings. Her father also died, but her two older siblings survived.

She was the daughter of John Robert Carson and Catherine Major.

The family lived at 1410 Barrington Street.

Due to the amount of damage done, the tsunami, the fires and a snowstorm just days later, many bodies were either not recovered until the spring or summer. Many bodies were never found at all.
