Edith Cook was born in 1873 She passed away in 1876. Her small glass, cast-iron casket was originally from the 1870's at San Francisco's Odd Fellows Cemetery.
Nearly 140 years later in May 2016, a construction crew at a home on Rossi Street near the University of San Francisco found the sealed casket.
Inside they found a little girl with long blonde hair, wearing a long white lace dress. She had a cross made of flowers on her chest and she was nicknamed Miranda Eve.  Through painstaking research and DNA, researchers have solved the mystery. She is Edith Cook, daughter of Horatio Nelson Cook and Edith Scooffy, and lived on 635 Sutter Street in San Francisco.
She died from Marasmus , a term used in the 1800s for extreme undernourishment likely brought on by any number of illnesses. 
Through the Garden of Innocence Project, the little girl was reburied in Colma, California.
