0004623: <dwarven baby ghost name> has grown to become a Ghostly Dwarven Child
Pretty-self explanatory. This particular baby has drown, because her mother left her in a channel as she was digging out the last square from above to flood the channel with water. Dwarven mothers cannot into common sense.
I'm not sure whether undead aging is a bug or intended behavior, but I havent found anything on that on the forum, and it seems stupid enough to report.
"Kill all babies!"
Probably related to other undead aging issues.
No tags attached.

As far as I can tell looking through the code, this was fixed with the big release. Feel free to reopen if it happens again.
