Windham/Tolland County Connecticut Influenza Epidemic of 1918

Windham/Tolland County Connecticut Influenza Epidemic of 1918

Classification: Death
Surnames: Beaumont, Squires
I am trying to locate where my maternal great grandmother, Alice M(Maude)Squires-Beaumont may be buried.

Alice was born in May of 1891, in Coventry, Tolland County Connecticut. Her parents were Frank & Fannie(Charlotte) Trask-Squires. Alice was married to Arthur Dunbar Beaumont, they had 5 children, Lewis, Leroy (a/k/a Buster, my grandfather), Loren, Grace and Ethel.

She passed away sometime between 1917 & 1920. We were told of TB, or consumption. Either way it is most likely she died of complications caused by this influenza.

I have contacted the Coventry, CT town hall and they have no record of her death and suggested we try another town or county as she may not have died in the town and or county in which she resided.

If anyone can be of assistance, I would truly appreciate it!

Thanks!

In Mass. we have the Mass Archives - records from 1841 to 1915. They are now getting records from 1915 to 1920. They also have an index of records from 1915-1970. You can research records yourself there - free. Then we have the Mass Vitals - records from 1920-present. They also have an index to present day. You can research records there yourself for $9 an hour. Does Connecticut have something like that? Sometimes directories will list when the person died? Ancestry will have some.

What about her parents? Could she be buried with them?

Thank you for responding.

I am in Indiana, so it's nearly impossible for me to visit any libraries, county or state offices in CT.

We are headed to CT in a few months, I just may take a little time to do some searching while I am there, though.

Thanks again!

You probably found this by now but in case you haven't, there is a good chance she is in the Nathan Hale Cemetery of South Coventry. Her husband's 1959 obit shows that is where he was interred (see the attached).

I am not related.

Thanks!

I did find out she was buried in the Nathan Hale Cemetery, dates of her death etc.

I did not have Arthur's obit. Thanks!

There are also a few more pieces in the obit that clears some things up.

Thanks again!
