    I just searched. Can't find anything. Not even a newspaper article. She was lovely. Very pretty girl. Would be interesting to find what became of her.

    Info for anyone that is going to try to track Mary:

    Carmilo Lazzara M 7y9m
    Mary Lazzara F 4y9m
    Bennie Lazzara M 3y9m

    It would help if we had a middle name for Mary to rule out that she might have left of her own accord or eloped perhaps.

    I wonder if this could be her grave. Birth year is right but I guess a death certificate would be needed to match up her parents names. This grave is in Tampa Fl and I don't think Florida death records are online, other than the ssdi.

    I just found this Mary Lazzara with the grave on the Ssdi and it lists a birthdate of 3/7/1915 while our mp is 3/15/1915.

    There is a record of a Mary T Lazzara, born 3/14/1915 (rather than 3/15/1915). She was born in Chicago and died in Chicago on 6/22/1986. I would discount this one except that the 1920 and 1930 census records for the missing Mary Lazarra clearly show that she was born in Illinois - so we have a Mary Lazarra born in the right place with a birth date one day different to the missing girl (and birth/christening dates often get mixed in online records). The death record for Mary T Lazarra shows a SSN (no 335124677) issued in Illinois before 1951. Is it possible that the missing Mary Lazarra returned to Illinois and lived out her life there? Of course, it may just be coincidence. All of this information comes from records on Ancestry.
