Tombstone Tuesday...

Veronica Alphenia MANLEY
Born:  7 Sep 1893
Died:  4 Feb 1894
Buried:  Green Hill Cemetery, Logan county, IL

Veronica (nicknamed Ronie) was the daughter of John Milton and Rachel Anna (Carrothers) Manley.  She died just shy of 5 months old.  John and Rachel must have wanted a lasting memory of this precious baby and had this photograph taken after she died.  Five of their twelve children died at under 2 years of age.

I don't have any photos like this. I wonder if they had other photos of her when she was alive.
