Connie Elvin was the daughter of Christopher Williams and Mariam Ruth King. She had ten siblings: Raymond Leslie, William Arden, Guthrie Hugh, Evelee Sarah, Willis Lafayette, Chester Adolph, Vester Laverne, Lenley Laylan, Azalee Mae, and Dora Juanita Novalee.
Connie was one of the victims of the Influenza Pandemic of 1918. According to her sister, Azalee, this is what happened:
"Connie contracted influenza and soon died. And, due to the large number of deaths in the area, the authorities told the family to bury the child quickly in the nearest available area. A Mr. Abrams outside McLoud volunteered a part of his land for a cemetery for the victims needing immediate burial. That's where Connie was buried."
The family wasn't wealthy enough to afford a headstone for Connie, and it's unlikely one was ever put up. It's also likely that many burials, like Connie's, were never recorded for the cemetery.
Thank you, FAG, for providing a place for this little girl's brief life to be remembered.
