Carrie Wild





















According to Ohio Birth Records housed at Family Search, Carrie Wild was born on September 29, 1888 to Jesse and Mary Wild in Erie County, Ohio. Sadly, Carrie Wild died after she was injured in a fire at her home, on June 28, 1897. Carrie was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Her tombstone is in the shape of a heart, with the letters of her first and last name fitting in the upper portions of the left and right sides of the heart. I am sure her parents were deeply saddened at the loss of their young daughter.

(Note: Carrie's tombstone gives 1896 as her year of death, but her death record states that she died in 1897.)
