Helen Dunn Rhind Watt, 1871-1873
Vital Records from Scotland, available at Family Search, tell us that Helen Dunn Rhind Watt was born on February 28, 1871 in Old Deer, Scotland, to James and Hannah (Lovie) Watt. U.S. Census records for Summit County, Ohio, indicate that James and Hannah Watt emigrated to the United States in 1871, the very year that little Helen was born. Helen D. Rhind Watt died on June 27, 1873. She was aged 2 years, 3 months, and 27 days old. Helen D. Rhind Watt was buried in the North Ridge section of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. By 1900, Helen's family had moved to Akron, Summit County, Ohio, where her father was employed as a miller. Rest in peace, Helen.
