Does ANYONE have any idea how to find this child's name? I can't find a birth record, death certificate or a grave. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

female age: 2 yrs., 4 months First name unknown
She would have been born about September of 1883 in Ohio, probably Allen County.

She died January 8, 1886 in Lima, Ohio.

Her father: Charles F. YEAGER / YAGER

Her mother: Anna C. ZINK

This article was in the Lima newspaper:

January 8, 1886 - Daily Democratic Times - Lima
At noon yesterday, C. F. Yager, a painter employed at the Lima Machine Works, went to his work leaving his little two-year-old daughter playing with the other children, apparently as well and hearty as any of them. At about 3 o'clock he received a telephone message that the child was sick, and that a physician was needed. Hastening home with a physician the child was found in a paroxysm. No relief could be given it, and after suffering until 3 o'clock this morning death came to its relief. It was the youngest child, the pet of the household, and was two years and four months old. The illness was attributed to brain trouble. The funeral will be held in Mr. Yager's home, on the corner of Grand Avenue and Union Streets, tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock. Rev. J. H. Stepler conducting the services.
