Wednesday's Child - Nellie Unknown

We found this stone for Nellie while working in Boundary Line Cemetery in La Fontaine, IN.

I can't read the line beneath Nellie's name which probably states who her parents are.  All I know is that Nellie died on 3 Apr 1886 and was only 1 day old.  Most likely she died in Wabash County, IN.  Her stone is among a few just left leaning on other stones so I can't even tell where she is buried in the cemetery.

I'll need to do further research at the courthouse and in the newspaper to try and determine Nellie's last name.

Until then she remains Nellie Unknown.

  1. When I am walking the cemeterys for find a grave requests, I see so many strang or sad things. I think the saddes is the negleted graves and the head stones that are in bad shape...forgotten graves, forgotten loved ones!
