It is hard to understand how parents could live through so many sad times. In one of the family cemeteries in Barren County, Kentucky, there are many small stones with no names on them, now tucked over in a corner but probably once over the tiny plots of babies. They might even be for these McConnell children, but we won't ever know. So we'll let them be remembered here - the tiniest of Immortal Nobodies.
