About Irene Rebecca Capps
Irene Rebecca Cochran is buried on my farm. Several years ago while copying the dates and names I came to her 2 children's marker which I could not read as it was faint and covered with moss. I took this marker home to clean up and decipher. I found that it was 2 markers in one and the infant died April 25, 1867. This was the child that she died in giving birth. Her date of death was 3 days later though. On that same marker was the name Erasmus b. December 18, 1857 and died on the same date as the infant April 25, 1867. It is still a mystery to me why this 10 yr. old died on the same date as the infant.
