I am looking for the birth and death records for a baby who lived for four days in the mid to late 1920s. My great-grandparents had at least three children that died shortly after birth. I think there might have been as many as six, but I can only find documentation for two of them (as well as one who died at age nine).
My grandmother showed me a list of all her deceased siblings in the 1990s. Her mother had written it out before she died. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find this list since my grandmother's death (it may have been lost or stuck inside a book). I only saw it twice, and I didn't remember all of the names, but I think there was one named Emily Luttrell, and I think she was born and died in 1926. I noticed that she was born after my grandmother (who was born in 1923), so I asked her if she remembered this little sister. She told me that she did. It could have been as late as 1928, but I don't think later, because I remember my grandmother being about four at the time, maybe three or two. I also seem to remember the birth as being in May (but maybe one of them was named May).
The problem is that I cannot find any record of the birth or death of this baby, nor of any babies that may have been born between 1919-1922 (there may have been one or two born during this time as well).
I would appreciate any help in tracking down any records for these children.
The family lived in Casey County, Kentucky, but they also had relatives in Illinois and Indiana. My great-grandmother was born in Indianola, Illinois, and died in Tennessee. Her parents had divorced, and her father and step-mother lived near Indianapolis, Indiana. I think that all of the children were probably born in Casey County, however, because I think it's unlikely that she would have been traveling out of state while pregnant.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my problem! I know that it may seem really irrelevant to try to find the names of my grandmother's infant brothers and sisters, but their loss had an enormous impact on my family, which is still being felt today, so it's a part of my family history that I would really like to preserve.
I am including only the baby's Wikitree ID, however both parents and all the known siblings have already been added.
Parents names were Henry Jefferson Luttrell and Vina or Vinia Green (actually Luvinia, but her name never shows up that way). I have seen Henery and Ruttrell and Dina and Vivian and Greer show up as variant spellings in records. I'm sure there are other variants as well, making some documents very difficult to find.
