Story here about a Sylvester & Maurice Merth. Wonder if this was these 2? http://www.prairiepublic.org/radio/dakota-datebook/?post=66617
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.
Rose from the next photo is John Sylvester's sister.https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/76939/memorial-search?firstName=&lastName=Merth&cemeteryname=Mount%20Hope%20Cemetery&page=1#sr-106717926
I meant Joseph Sylvester - not John Sylvester.
Maurice Marcus MerthBirth Date: 11 Jul 1912
