  1. I always consider it an accomplishment if I can find a birth AND death date for the whole family. But there always seems to be ONE hold-out.

    1. It is nice to find them all. In this case I'm sure that Charles died at birth or as an infant, I'm just not sure of the years or where he fits into the order of children. Thanks for reading, Wendy!
