Holy Cross Cemetery
The memorial called "Babyland," located at the Holy Cross Cemetery, lists over 500 names of infants and toddlers who are buried in one of the oldest sections of the cemetery. Lady Hibernians came up with the idea to start a memorial in 2002 after the group had toured the cemetery.
The wooden grave markers had all but disintegrated and the ground was overgrown with weeds.
Lady Hibernians spent the next few years cleaning the site and raising
money for the project. Hibernian
volunteers went over the cemetery's old log books and copied the names
of all those buried in the baby section. Many of the deaths occurred
during the Spanish flu epidemic that killed millions worldwide between
1916 and 1926 .
