Birth: Oct. 3, 1865
Mount Erie
Wayne County
Illinois, USA
Death: Oct. 15, 1880
Conway Springs
Sumner County
Kansas, USA

Age 15 years, 11 months, - Daughter of G. and M.J. Orr. Even though the tombstone shows a death date of October 15, 1881, the Sumner County Press newspaper carried a notice of her death in the October 28, 1880 issue, so there was evidently an error made on the inscription. Perhaps a tombstone wasn't erected for a couple of years after her death. She died of typhoid malarial fever.
