Hattie H King
Birth: Jun. 15, 1905
Bath
Sagadahoc County
Maine, USA
Death: Mar. 3, 1914

Buried in the Bath Military and Naval Orphan Asylum area funded through the efforts of Sarah J Smith Sampson, buried in Arlington Cemetery.

Hattie's Mom was Almira Foss Stearns King, who died at 26 years of age.

THE DIPHTHERIA OUTBREAK OF 1914

In 1914, after the young mother of four young daughters passed, their father, a war veteran, found himself unable to manage working and caring for all the children by himself. He turned to the Bath Military and Naval Orphan Asylum and, thankfully, was able to place the girls in their care. Several months later, there was a diphtheria outbreak. A nurse was hired and every effort made to save the children as the outbreak raged through the orphanage. A miraculous job was done. Tragically, however, little Hattie King was the only child who didn't survive. She died at the age of 8 and is buried in the orphanage plot in Oak Grove, Bath, Maine. Family members are buried not far away. Not long after, her father remarried and retrieved Hattie's sisters Mary Francis King, Sadie Etta King, and Ella King.

It was through Find-a-Grave that her living family members learned Hattie's story. She is "reunited" with the descendants who have her now, always in their hearts.
