For many years, historians and geneaologists have said that death of children did not evoke the same feelings in parents of the 19th and early 20th centuries that it does in parents of today.

The thought was that there were so many children born that parents realized there would be a certain level of infant and child mortality. That's just the way it was. They didn't look at their children like we do ours.

Thankfully, that line of thinking is changing.

Because all you have to do is go to a cemetery with children's graves of that time, and look at the gravestones.
