Connie was the illegitimate daughter of Kate, Harry's sister. She was born in June 1910 in the Nottingham area.
She was brought up by Kate's brother Harry and his wife Ethel. That Harry is the subject of the blog.
I believe the picture on the left is Connie. It was the front of a postcard sent to Kate in December 1913 by her sister Agnes. The cryptic note on the back is interesting.
A second picture, a little older, has Willie's distinctive handwriting on the back.
Willie has said that Connie was "a cripple". I have no further information on this.
Connie died on 21st December 1929 and was buried on Christmas Eve. She died from complications resulting from her cerebral palsy.
Her grave, which she shares with her
