Just because they “died young” doesn’t mean there won’t be a record

As posted earlier, I followed a “shaky leaf hint’ from an Index record to the actual Image on Family Search using the FHL film number.

What I didn’t mention specifically was that he lived only 9 Months. So, that HINT on an INDEX record lead to this death record and that was in 1874.

This baby would have a younger brother, born in May of 1880 that would have made the 1880 Federal Census.

The date of the  Census was 19 Jun 1880 and died in October of that year.

I just realized that these to records of a “died young” entries were brothers.

Lesson learned: Look for those records
