A Sad and Puzzling Day – 9/27/1876

August 15, 2012 at 10:33 pm Leave a comment

When I first discovered the birth and death records of Florence Edith Hall, I thought that the little girl had been sick and then died at the age of two in September, 1876. The death certificate said her death had occurred at Wellington, Madras, India, so my assumption was that William had been stationed at Wellington at the time of her death. As I discovered and looked closely at William’s record  I found that he had come to Wellington in January, 1876. I don’t know if he was stationed at the hospital or if he was sick. There is a medical record that shows William was in the hospital from September 19 to September 26. The next day his daughter Florence Edith died at Wellington. I don’t know the cause of her death. William’s diagnosis was Muscular Rheumatism, he was treated with local applications, and the reason for his illness was the climate of India. On May 15, 1877, William was at Netley Hospital in England and on June 11, 1877, he was discharged from service. I just can’t figure out what was happening to the family. More research is needed.

My Mom Ada

This blog traces the family history of my mom, Edith Porter Duffy. From the time I was a little girl, my mom would tell me stories about her family, who all called her Ada. I only wish I had asked her more questions while she was still here!
