1888 has another tragedy of a baby born dead, or dying shortly after birth.  Modern medicine has made this a much more rare occurrence.  Anyone doing genealogy will have seen far too many examples of this.  This one is in my line, and I have visited the gravesite for this infant in Crawford County, Indiana.

Happy Pi Day!
