Four children of my ancestors died on 13 Oct 1866 according to Elmwood Cemetery records, where they are all buried in Memphis, Shelby Co, TN.
What happened on 13 Oct 1866? Does anyone know of a fire or train wreck or anything that would cause four children between the ages of 2 and 12 to all perish on the same day, from the same family?
The children who died were children of William Benjamin McNabb and Mariah Isham Jones. Their names were:
William Benjamin McNabb, Jr.
Maria Louise McNabb
All four of these children died on 13 Oct 1866.
If anyone knows of anything that happened on this date, please respond to my querie. I cannot search any newspaper archives in Memphis as I am in another state. Maybe there was a fire at the McNabb house or a train wreck in Tennessee somewhere on this date or something like that. I have no clue. Any small clue would greatly be appreciated.
