Has anyone searched the early branch records from this LDS ward or branch in
North Carolina? If not, perhaps the parents actually contacted the LDS church
leaders in the area and it is recorded there...seems strange to me that they
would not have had local priesthood presiding at this burial.
Really, it seems the only way at this time to find the identity of the girl is
through publicity. This Deseret News article just may help. The family may or
may not be from Utah. Maybe they were from Wyoming or Idaho or Arizona etc ...
Would be nice if some TV stations also pick it up... maybe then a family member
or friend of family who came to NC approx 10-15 yrs ago might read or hear about
the story. An Ensign article would be nice...not sure if it would be published
Which LDS database? The databases search by name. The girl died under the
age of 8 years so the ONLY Temple work necessary IF her parents were NOT sealed
in the temple would have been to have her sealed to her parents.
"they (the parents had her death)had it recorded in their home county, a common
occurrence in those days, according to David Rencher, chief genealogical officer
of FamilySearch. And just like the state-run databases, FamilySearch, too,
requires a name.After meeting with Rencher, we spent time with
several genealogy experts at the church's Family History Library in Salt Lake
City. We seemingly exhausted possibilities."
My first step would be to write a query on the LDS database for a female died
NC, year 1925+-1, female, and born in Utah, year 1922 +or-3, and buried
Hampstead NC.You know that they were LDS, and someone came looking
for her, so likely her Temple work as been recorded in the LDS database.
