[Small] Hannah Susie Louise   ??? ? ???? ? Years   [I strongly believe that she is Hannah Susan Louise Small, who died 13 Feb 1887 at 5½ years old (Source: St. John The Evangelist parish burial records) . She was born in 1881 (bap. 10 Jul 1881- parents were Ephraim and Harriet Small ). On the parish baptism record she was listed as "Hannah Susie Louise" Small. It helped that she had such an unusual combination of 3 names!! Also, if you very closely below the "h" in "child" on her headstone, you will notice the possible 2 tips of the capital letter "H" ( for the mother's name Harriett...) and at the end the 2 faded t's.....
