Body found under Bay Area home identified as girl who died in 1876

on May10

The body of a 19th-century girl found last year inside a small metal casket under a San Francisco home has been identified.

The nonprofit Garden of Innocence project said Tuesday that the child was 2-year-old Edith Howard Cook, who died Oct. 13, 1876.

The girl was apparently left behind when the remains of about 30,000 people originally buried in San Francisco’s Odd Fellows Cemetery in the Richmond District were moved in the 1920s to Greenlawn Memorial Park in Colma.

She was reinterred at Greenlawn last year under a headstone bearing the name Miranda Eve, which had been the child’s nickname when her real name was unknown.
