Wednesday’s Child-Bertha and Ella E. McFadden
Bertha- born 1886 Apr 26 died 1886 Aug 1
Ella E.- born 1886 Apr 26 died 1886 Sep 10
Both are buried in Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Coal Center, Pennsylvania. The story I have heard is that they died from the 'sleeping sickness' which hit the community along the Monongahela River.
These were my great grandparents (Dennis and Elizabeth Neuland McFadden's) first born. So far, I have been unable to locate any additional information on their deaths or what the 'sleeping sickness' was.
