Although there is much information on the family of the prolific William "Juckers" Smith, I am seeking information on his first wife Martha Jane Rouse, who died on March 27, 1869. On the same day her daughter Janie Smith was born. Therefore, I assume Martha died in childbirth, although Janie went on to live a long life. Martha's headstone reads that she was buried with her infant daughter Precella who also died on March 27, 1869. Priscilla was not an infant, but was four years old. The question is what did Martha and Priscilla die of and why on the same day? Was there another infant mortality involved, a twin perhaps? Any information would be helpful.
