Unless someone identifies the remains by DNA, I will always believe that she was Eleanor Cook of Southampton MA. Her mother lived and worked in Hartford CT but the kids stayed with their aunt in Southampton MA. The mother saved up and took the children to the circus that day. She was not able to identity them because she was in the hospital badly burned. After she died in the '90s her sister (the child's aunt) came forward and said that the woman had always denied that it was Eleanor and would never even look at the picture that was posted in the newspaper every year. She would rather believe that Eleanor was alive somewhere. So finally the aunt gave up trying to get her to admit the truth. The surviving brother, Donald, said it was his sister. I lived 1/4 mile from Southampton when this secret was revealed by the aunt. I paid close attention because all my life I'd seen the picture in the newspaper and heard the story. Two policemen always went and placed flowers on her grave. Now they are saying it's not Eleanor. Dental records? Well, how good were dental records for a little kid back in 1944? Blonde hair while the mother was a brunette? Blonde hair often darkens later on. Height? Features? We don't know unless we have a family photo of Eleanor herself to compare. But I don't know why the aunt who lived on East St in Southampton MA would have lied and told the newspapers that the child was Eleanor if it hadn't been. Too bad someone won't do the DNA thing so people could know for sure but I doubt that will happen. Probably doesn't matter. Just that some of us who have lived with this mystery all their lives would like an answer.
