|The tiny grave of Hattie L. in Village Cemetery. She was 8 months old when she died.|
I doubt whether many people have visited Hattie's final resting place lately. The grass in the cemetery looked as if it had not been cut for weeks. And besides, who would venture to the out-of-the-way spot, halfway up the hill of an old cemetery? The graves of Hattie's parents appear to be just to the right of her marker, but I don't know that for sure.
So who was Hattie L.? And why did she die so young?
Someday I'd like to find out.
