The Children of Our Ancestors

This Page is dedicated to the many children of my ancestors that lost their lives before the age of 21. These people were the children, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren of our ancestors. Our ancestors witnessed each of these deaths and they touched them in many ways. I do not nearly have all of the "children deaths" listed, but the ones I do have give an idea as to the extent of child death in the past. Most of the causes of death are not known. They are divided into name of the deceased, date of death, age at death and cause of death (if known).
