  1. Story here about a Sylvester & Maurice Merth. Wonder if this was these 2? http://www.prairiepublic.org/radio/dakota-datebook/?post=66617

    1. In 1916, in Grand Forks, 5-year-old Sylvester Merth rescued his 3-year-old brother, Maurice, by pulling him out of a rain-barrel. Maurice had slipped, headfirst, while climbing on a board leading to the barrel.
      Mostly likely the same little boys.

  2. Rose from the next photo is John Sylvester's sister.
