Melanie Paul My most recent babies - - - Stllborn baby girl Scarlett (1930-1930) and her older brother Jesse Lloyd Scarlett (1929-1930). I'm not done with this family's losses, yet, as there were two more babies who died young. Of the seven known siblings, only 3 lived to adulthood. - 20 Feb 2021

Melanie Paul I haven't been updating -- again -- but this one broke my heart. William Ulric McGee Jnr (1944-1944), who died barely 5 MINUTES after he was born, of a congenital heart defect. His mother, and his sister, both later perished when the aircraft in which they, and three other family members (travelling home after attending the funeral of another family member), crashed into a row of bungalows/houses in Chicago. (Can be read about here: Wikipedia "United Airlines Flight 553") - 12 Feb 2021

Tuli Bennett-Bose I so admire the goals of this project, and I wanted to share a biography I worked on recently that absolutely broke my heart. Delcena Diadamie Martineau (1857-1865) passed away at seven years old, and I found some sweet poems written by each of her parents to commemorate her life. - 8 Feb 2021

Melanie Paul I think there have been a couple between my last update and the two new profiles from today, but I don't think I have a list. Instead it'll just be three from the other day - Henry Loader (1871-1871), his next brother Henry Loader (1872-1876), and their sister, Loader-543 - and the ones from today - Alfred Charles Millet (1870-1871), who died less than a year old, and his sister, Juliette Annette Millet (1872-1885), who died aged 13 years. Juliette was the subject of a collaborative effort for transcribing her baptismal entry, because I don't speak (or read) French. - 4 Aug 2020

Melanie Paul Once again I have been remiss in posting updates, so here are my more recent babies and small children. (As much as I wanted to, I did not include a 19-year-old, even though he died unmarried and childless. There are too many who regard one of his age as an adult.) Joseph Plumbtree (1826-1828) 👪 Margaret Plumbtree (1833-1834) 👪 Janet Plumtree (1855-1856) 👪 Margaret Plumtree (1857-1858) 👪 William Plumtree (1859-1867) 👪 Jane Plumtree (1870-1871) 👪 Jeanie Ann Plumtree (1872-1875) 👪 Irene Jeanie Plumtree (1879-1882) 👪 Florence Paulina Daisy Plumtree (1881-1899) 👪 Elizabeth Alderdice (1876-1876) 👪 - 14 Jul 2020

Melanie Paul I have been remiss in updating. I don't remember how many I have done since my last update, but my most recent have been : Ruth Ralston (1904-1904), her brother Unnamed Infant Ralston (1911-1911), and Elin Elise Ingeborg Harald (1887-1887). - 17 Jun 2020

Dallas (MacKechnie) Manicom As someone who has had a miscarriage and a stillbirth, I think this is a wonderful project and would love to join! Have already gotten started with the following: Marcy Davis (1666-1667), Samuel Tetley (1874-1875) and Annie Horsman (1872-1872). I love the graphics that Melanie has created as they really "make" these precious little ones' profiles extra-special in honouring them ♥

Sheryl Moore Fred Lee Gyorko (1959-1959) is now memorialized with the cherub image to remember he was only a day old when he died. His mother lost her father in a mine explosion when she was 5; lost her mother when she was 10 and lost her only child. It is important to remember the babies. - 6 Feb 2020

Melanie Paul This may be my last update for a while, as I currently have no known baby / child profiles ready for me .. and I have some adult profiles needing my attention. That being said, however, my most recent marathon was adding in the six (6 (four more than 2!)) deceased babies of my 3-greats grandparents: Mary Crewe (1829-1835), Ann Crewe (1831-1832), Thomas Crewe (1833-1834), Elizabeth Crewe (1839-1841), Joseph Crewe (1842-1842), and Nancy Crewe (1846-1847). - 26 Sep 2019
