    1. Killed at Bertram, IA June 5, 1925 by C&NW fast train, all 3 boys buried together. I was curious why three of her brothers died in the same year. William , Winslow and David all died the same day and are buried side by side with one long marker,

    2. Oh, what a horrible tragedy for the family to endure. Yes, I would be curious about that detail, too.

      What a bonnie baby to start off a bright new year!
