    John Arthur Thorne writes:
    From Michigan Death Index - Bay County; Death Records Vol D-E (1893-1946); P.18, Record #10473, May 5, 1906. Arthur N. DeWaele, male/white/ single, 2 days old, Died of convulsions. Parents: Arthur N. DeWaele and Helen Archambault.

    Sandra Kay has a picture of infant Arthur in his baptismal gown, being held by Arthur Sr. The gown was made from Grandma's (Helen) wedding dress; and all the DeWaele children were baptized in it. The gown was "resurrected" in 1991 for Kylee Thorne's baptism; and (I believe) it was worn by Molly O'Donnell in 2001. That's a span of 95 years. Great tradition!

    My understanding is that baby Arthur died of a weak heart.
