This is the death certificate of Della Grace King, who died unmarried at the age of 21 years, 7 months and 1 day, also from Pulmonary Tuberculosis. Della was the youngest of the 10 children in the family. What losses this family suffered, and what pain they must have felt upon the deaths from Tuberculosis of these two precious young daughters.
I think of my husband's Grandmother, Hettie. At age 23 she lost her next younger 21-year-old sister, then at age 29 she lost her baby sister to tuberculosis. I feel for her even now.
