"Benjamin Harrison Hoosier Warrior"

"On Saturday, April 3, 1858, Ben wrote in his diary for the fourth and last
time that year: "Our Little Girl Born About Noon . . . after Carrie had
gone through severe labor for about twelve hours . . . doctor had
to use forceps. " Thus it was with the arrival of Mary forever
to be called Mamie that Russell was superseded as the baby of
the family. The newcomer, according to sister Jennie, was "a
perfect little beauty . . . prettier than Russell." Poor Carrie came
in for little or no credit for this bundle of natural pulchritude,
for Jennie added: "I think she must be pretty . . . sure enough . . .
I suppose like her father ... of course."
