Tombstone Tuesday: Evelyn Marie PEMBERTON

FEB. 29, 1936
FEB. 28, 1948

My great-aunt
Elk Township Cemetery
Peck, Sanilac, Michigan

According to Evelyn's death record at the St. Clair County Courthouse in Port Huron, Michigan, she died from continuous epileptic seizures and edema of the lungs at age 11. My great-grandmother actually had two daughters who died from this same cause. I will feature her other daughter's grave in a future Tombstone Tuesday post. What is interesting about Evelyn is that she was born on Leap Day, and if she had lived just one more day, she would have died on Leap Day. Now that would have been weird.
