I won't make you do the math. The family's first child died four months after birth. Their second child died at the age of three months. The third child died when he was two years old. I cannot begin to imagine the hurt the family suffered. That poor woman.

you begin to believe all will be okay with this one.

They were made with some really thick heavy duty metal.
It is also believed several neighboring children caught in a prairie fire are buried here without markers.
Just a lonely quiet dusty intersection of a Highway (yes, it is designated as Highway 47)

The Bergs were blessed with four more children after the first three died.
