Wednesday’s Child is one of the daily blogging prompts at Geneabloggers that features gravestones of children.
I love this photo of Pearl Sullivan Strole (first cousin three times removed) with her children Maxine and baby Grayson. Pearl’s sweet and contented expression is matched only by the way Maxine’s little head rests against her mother and her hand holds on at her neck.
But someone is absent. It’s little Burnell, Pearl and Clyde’s first baby girl who lived only two years. She is buried in Coverstone Cemetery, Shenandoah, Virginia, along with the other Stroles.
Baby Grayson was not long for this world either. He died at age 19.
