Re: Henry Squires, Coventry, Ct.

Frank and Fannie Squires are my great-great grandparents. They had a daughter Alice M(Maude), sbe was my great grandmother. Alice died at an early age from consumption or TB, either I am sure was caused by complications from the influenza outbreak of 1918. I am looking for the date of her death as well as where she died and was buried.

Alice was married to Arthur Dunbar Beaumont, my great-grandfather. They had 5 children, Lewis(John), Leroy(Buster), Loren(Logee), Grace and Ethel. Leroy was my grandfather.

My grandparents Leroy & Helen(Mary Helen Charland) had 3 children, Barbara, Robert and Roland. It is believe that Roland passed away when he was approx 2 weeks of age due to heart complications.

No one knows he DOB of this child, just that it was most likely between 1941-1946. There are no birth, death or baptismal records for this child. Although the other 2 children and cousins were all baptized in the same church...totally strange.

We were told he was buried in the Nathan Hale Cemetery altough we were given very vague information as to the whereabouts of the grave... "It's over there...", another strange response, since one would assume parents would know the exact location of the child's grave. There are no Beaumonts in the Nathan Hale Cemetery nor are there any Squires.

I am toying with the theory that this child may have been put up for adoption due to poor economic conditions. Perhaps my grandparents could not afford to keep this child.

They provided very little information, almost as if they were reluctant to disclose more information. I think I may have been involved in a conversation concerning this child, once. My mother, Barbara doesn't ever remember having a conversation concerning the child after they day he was taken away to "the hospital." My mother believes she was approx 5yrs old at this time, she was born in 1937.

I am searching for any information concerning any of the Squires and or Beaumonts. I am at a standstill concerning both my great grandmother, Alice and infant uncle, Roland.

Any information anyone can or is willing to provide would be grately appreciated.
