We find

Daniel Brown, born just 12 days before his mothers death, died 3 months later, on September 6 1869
Lydia died 2 months after her baby brother, on Nov 8 1869
Four deaths in 1869

Also in the cemetery are Martin, age 7 months died in 1874, listed as the son of Henry & Abby, but Abby died in 1869?
and Charles, also age 7 months, died in 1875, also as the son of Henry & Abby
Were these children of Henry & Lydia?  I need to visit the cemetery and see the stones for myself.
