Dollie Mincel-Oak Ridge Cemetery.JPG

Dollie Estella Mincel, April 20, 1896 – July 27, 1897.  She is found in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, IL.    I usually leave these posts wordless, but I found something a bit disturbing on Find-a-Grave when I was double-checking the name — “Records say she was killed by being hit in the head with a hatchet, Aged 1Y, 3M, 23D.”     I’m not sure where the person who posted this got the information, so I might be doing a bit of digging….
