As with Laura Carlotta Brown, Edith Louisa Brown was a half sister to my grandmother Bertha Brintnell Stewart. Edith was born 1884 in South Dakota and died 6 Jan 1894 in Pipestone also of diphtheria (Pipestone, MN Register of Deaths). The third child the family lost to that disease was Ellbert Victor who is also buried in the same cemetery. All were children of Sarah McDowell Brown and Leonard D. Brown. Can you link the children? Edith 67512257, Ellbert 58189310, Laura 67512276? There is a photo of Ellbert's headstone. Do you still do photos? I would so appreciate one of Laura and Edith's stones, if possible.

How sad for this family to lose 3 children within 3 days. I can't imagine how they felt. They had come to the US from Canada and returned up there in 1902. My grandmother was raised in another family, perhaps that saved her life.
