Clara and Cleophas had two children that died at an early age; Raymond was the second child born and Robert the fifth child. They are both buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Andover, but the definitive location is unknown. It is believed that one is buried with Clara's parents and the other is buried in the child/pauper area of the cemetery, but there is no headstone at this location.
