  1. That is heart wrenching. To lose two daughters at just a few months old. Did they have other children?

    1. Yes, they had other children. Death visited too often in homes with young children.

  2. Parents are not supposed to bury their children. I hear this said so often. How very sad and difficult it must have been for William & Mattie. I can't help but wonder what the cause was.

    1. I am guessing it was a fever, yellow or malaria. I would love to know the cause of their deaths.
