Clairmont, Hermine

BORN 1832 - DIED 1847

Daughter of Charles Clairmont. She was tubercular and Charles had bought a country cottage at Weidling to provide her with pure air. It didn't help her, for she died when she was only 15 years old. Until the end she had no idea that she was dying and Charles hadn't let a priest come near to her to 'contaminate her last moments'.
