Wednesday's Child - Holley Son and Daughter


Numon and Elizabeth Holley lost two children in 1848.  Jane D just over nine years of age in February  and then little Preston just over eight months old died in May.    "I saw you pale and suffering; I heard your morning cry; your memory still upon my heart; with ....." the epitaph reads in part.  Preston was their last baby, the youngest of nine children.  I have not found information regarding the deaths of these two children. Just an entry in the family Bible noting their death.
