Annie Whittle
Birth: May 1, 1894
Williamstown
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 1, 1894
Williamstown
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA

NOTE TO FINDAGRAVE ADMINS: Please don't delete this as a duplicate memorial. Mother and daughter of the same name died the same day.

Annie Whittle and her mother, Annie Gertrude Romberger Whittle, died in childbirth. Baby Annie's father was Joseph Whittle, a grocer in Williamstown, Pennsylvania.

I like family history, and am not a true genealogist, so I can't tell you who this little Annie was to me. She was my great grandpa's niece, the daughter of his little sister. Kind fellow graver Kathy tells me Annie is my first cousin, twice removed.

Little Annie's stone says simply "Infant Daughter 1894". Other records indicate her name was Annie, perhaps named so posthumously by the grieving father and husband.

It appears Mother Annie died in childbirth not even 3 weeks after her own father died as well. It must have been a hellacious time for the Romberger family to lose three people at once- a beloved father, a married sister and her newborn daughter. Young Baby Annie's father's information is here.

Huge thanks go to Deborah Nouzovsky who confirmed the existence of these mother and daughter graves. Annie Gertrude's husband, Joe Whittle, (who married again later to Emma Stinner and is buried elsewhere at Seyberts) is part of Deborah's clan, and she found my Annies in the same cemetery, surprising us both.
