Tombstone Tuesday: Sisters die 4 days apart

This is a very sad tombstone for the little daughters of Thomas and Mary King in Arkell Ontario.

Little Catherine died first at the age of 5, on Dec. 9, 1870. Four days later her one year old sister Mary Ann died. Their mother had died previously in childbirth with Mary Ann.

"Mary Ann d. Dec 13, 1870 age 1 yr, 2 mos, 2 days

Catherine d. Dec. 9 1870 age 5 yrs, 7 mos, 16 days

Children of Thomas W. & Mary A. King"
A search for their death records shows that both little girls died of diptheria.
