Tombstone Tuesday

Harry Babcock was a serial monogomist.  He married Catherine first and had three children.  After she died he married Lydia Stryker and had three more children including Nora Babcock Cass.  After Lydia died Harry married Sarah Mason.  Sarah outlived Harry. 

In Allen's 1896 journal, Aunt Emma Fenton,  the youngest Babcock child is dying from heart disease but I realized that there was once a sibling in between Emma and Nora in the family--one never really spoken of and only found in the census.  That was Henry Babcock who died at age 8.
