Tombstone Tuesday: Little Robbie

Graves of little children are the most heartbreaking of all. This little granite gravestone is still clearly readable and is a good example of a carved gravestone of this era. It amazes me that there was room to get in the "Our Darling Robbie".

Children like Robbie are often not included in compiled genealogies. It is important to include them because it can explain why whole families died (from disease) or even if the mother die of a broken heart.
