A mother and two of her daughters - the picture in the upper left is my great great grandmother, Charlotte Webb Jepson; the other pictures are of her daughters, Lena Bartlett Jepson in the right, and Harriette (Hattie) Minerva Jepson, who was my great grandmother, in the lower left.
Charlotte lost two of her children, George and Catherine, to diphtheria on September 12, 1876. George was 16, Catherine was 14. Sadly, Charlotte also succumbed to the illness and died April 23, 1877. She was 5 weeks shy of her 41st birthday. I cannot begin to imagine how my great great grandfather felt, having lost two children and his wife within 7 months of each other.
TFL and for letting me share a little bit of my genealogy with you!
