Tombstone of Child Who Died in 1880s Found in Dayton

A tombstone was found in Dayton and police are looking for relatives of the young girl whose name is on it.

"Rosy Pink" is the name, and the tombstone says that she was the daughter of S and M Workman. The young girl was born in 1876 and died in 1888 (or 1883 - the provided photo is difficult to read).

Dayton Police reported Tuesday that the tombstone was found on the 1000 block of Dayton Avenue.

Officers hope to return it to where it came from.
