Lillian Theresa Carlson

Lillian was the daughter of Angus Carlson. She died on October 6, 1897 and in doing so became the first white child to die in Skagway. She was born August 19, 1894 in Everett Washington and moved here with her family in 1897. She was only three years old and although we do not know the cause of death, spinal meningitis was very common at that time, as well as other diseases.

Her sad little grave is in the Gold Rush cemetery.
