Martha & Hannah Holmes – 1901

A mourning card to commemorate the death of Hannah Maria Holmes, daughter of John Walker and Martha Ann Holmes.
Presumably virulent illness or an accident caused the deaths of Hannah and her mother Martha as they died on the same day and were interred at the same time.
