      There were three sibling deaths in 1844, two in June, and another in December. A closer inspection of the Truax Document suggests that the June dates are actually December dates. The youngsters who died were:
      Ellon aged 8y 10m
      Robert aged 6y 1m, and
      Margaret aged 1y 2m
      Charles had died 3 years earlier aged 1y 1m. The only survivor of this contagion was Thomas Jr, who would have been 3y 6m at the time, and went on to the age of 41. The subsequent child, Jane, born 10 months later only survived for 8 months. Obviously her mother, and perhaps her father as well, were still poorly. [2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
