Sibling Saturday - Carl and Robert Creeden

This photo was taken in August 1911 when my grandfather Robert Creeden was six months old and his brother Carl Edward Creeden was three. Sadly, Carl died from meningitis in 1912 when he was only four years old. Thanks to Marj B. for sending me the photo!


  1. What beautiful children... It must have been a great loss to his parents when Carl died so young.

  2. Thanks Yvonne! Yes, it was really hard on my great-grandparents. My great-grandfather talked to my Dad about it once when they were looking through some pictures of Carl. Thankfully, my grandfather and his younger sister lived long lives.
