My oldest sister Rita Marie Alexina LeBlanc was born 2 May 1922 and died 11 February 1925.
Another brother, Alphee Joseph Georges LeBlanc, was born 16 February 1931 who died on a date I have not yet found.
At the time my older siblings died my parents could not afford a tombstone so they were all buried in a chldren's portion of Sacred Heart Cemetery, Lawrence, MA along with other children who died and whose parents were too poor to purchase tombstones. In a way, I guess one could call it a children's "paupers" cemetery.
I have often visited where they are buried and wish I could have known them. There were six children born to my parents George LeBlanc and Rosanna Levesque LeBlanc. I often think of how difficult it must have been especially when the first two children died one month apart at such young ages.
When Tombstone Tuesday comes along each week I often think of them being "tombstone-less" so today I decided to blog in their memory.
