Little Homsie

Cousin Don and I have seen the little tombstones at Mt. Pleasant for the three small children of Thomas A. "Bunt" Dulaney and his wife Alice C. Moxley and have wondered about their sad departures. Jesse died in 1904 at the age of three, Homsie was four when he died in 1908, and Hinsey was two when he died in 1912.

A five year-old child of Mr. and Mrs. T. A. Dulany died last Saturday, only living about four hours after it was considered dangerously ill. The News tenders sympathy to the bereaved parents.

Mona, It is so good to find something on at least one of these children. It amazes me of the children that were lost in this era. Parents had to be strong back then.
