Wednesday’s Child – Alice McCormack

Today, I would like to honor someone that didn’t live long. In fact, she really didn’t live. I have a record of her birth/death, but at this time I can’t find it. I thought I had it scanned. But I digress!

The child that I would like to honor today is Alice McCormack [1], daughter of Arthur and Elizabeth Petronella (Dornauf) McCormack, my great grand uncle and aunt. She was born 16 Jan 1896 and died the same day. I seem to remember that she was a stillbirth. Her mother, on the 1900 Census [2], was identified as the mother of 4 children of which none survived to be documented on the census. Elizabeth must have been devastated after all that.

God Bless you Alice and Elizabeth.
