1910 U.S. Census: 
Age 6 
417 Spring Street, Jeffersonville, Clark, Indiana
(I tried to find this house on Google maps, but it came up with a bunch of shops and a parking lot where 417 should be so I'm assuming this house was torn down).

Grace died on Halloween night. She had been suffering from the flu and then it turned into pneumonia. This was during the Flu Epidemic of WWI. 

Here are some interesting 1917 Halloween photos I found on Google:
