I can't imagine the Pain of losing a child. Let alone 2 children, just merely babies in a short period of time. Cousin Elmer and Mary Elizabeth must of been thrown into the prongs of Grief for quite some time. It had to be heavy laden all of the burden they had to carry for the rest of their Lives. I just don't know or want to assume about their Grief.
There's a old song. One Day, We'll be Together! comes to mind.
Daniel "Mark" missed being on a census so we will have to look other places for clues. For instance the Newspaper of the Day in Cumberland County, West Pennsboro, Pa.
I would be reminisced if I didn't Thank my Cousin Pam . She contributes and makes sure we have the correct information. She provides support and research. I'm glad to have her as my 2nd pair of eyes on our Family History.
She has been to Prospect Hill in 2012 when the Headstone wasn't there. We will look into why?She took so many photos, got us a map and shared with all the Watson's. There are many of us on Ancestry.
We all have a pretty good repertoire.
Lillian is my Grandmother.
She was born October 30th, 1905. She was the same age as Daniel. I wonder did she play with her 1st cousin?
Her Mom; Cora Agnes is Sister to Elmer
