Ethel “Baby” Aspdin

In my read-through of stories about the Aspdins, I came across this Moose Jaw Times article which says that Mary and Thomas had three daughters who lived, and one unnamed one who was sickly and was born and died in 1893. Every time I see a record or a story or a grave for a child who died so young, I get a pull at my heart to mark their name because even though they lived such a short time they did touch the lives of others.

Baby Aspdin did have a name. The Saskatchewan Vital Statistics Index lists an Ethel Aspdin who was born to Thomas Aspdin and Mary Wihikanska on March 14, 1893. On August 1, 1893, Ethel Aspdin died.

Ethel is buried in the Moose Jaw Cemetery.
