Query: Grace Willson, Portland, Jay County, Indiana

Seeking information about Grace Willson, daughter of Charles and Elizabeth (Hughes) Willson. She was born about April of 1900. She was taken to the tuberculosis hospital or care center near Portland, Indiana. Grace died prior to November 1902 and was 3 years old. We know nothing of her birth except what her elder sister knew about it by living in the area. Another sibling, Sylvia died in November 1902 and this baby sister, Grace, died just before she did of Tuberculosis.
We do not know if she is buried in the cemetery where her grandparents are buried since she was confined to the Tuberculosis hospital.  This was so contagious that they did not allow visitors to the hospital. They did not notify the parents of her death. We assume she is resting in the cemetery that is where the hospital was Portland, Indiana.
