The gravestones for twin sisters. Edith died in 1948 aged 92, she lived a very long time. But Emily didn’t quite live a year, having been born March 22nd, like her sister, but passing away not even a year later, January 15th 1857. Such was the extreme unfairness of life, especially in the 1800s, when medicine was still in it’s infancy. And as many would argue, still is.
