Child of Sunset

Headstone for 14-year-old Hellen M. Stearns in Maple Hill Cemetery at U.S. Route 11 and Fairbanks Road in the village of Rouses Point, Clinton County, New York. Hellen was the daughter of E.H. and Mary Y. Stearns.

Such a small marker is usually reserved for a much younger child, especially one with a carving of Jesus and children, but I was unable to find a record online to confirm any details about this young woman’s life.
