Sympathy Saturday – Eugene F Shackford (1918-1918) (Blog 409)

Eugene F Shackford, the son of Eugene Dellmont and Eva Mable (Flood) Shackford was born Oct 18, 1918 in Springvale, Maine.  He only lived for 15 days and died on Nov 3 1918 in Springvale.  His death record states his cause of death was asphyxia with a contributing cause of gastritis with vomiting.

Eugene was buried on Nov 5, 1918 in the Hope Cemetery in Kennebunk, Maine.

This was the second child that this family lost  — their daughter Beulah May who was just a year old died  on Dec 5, 1917.  We hope this small blog helps memorialize these young children.
