Aunt Jule's twins
This picture is a treasure and a mystery all in one. The infants are the twin children of Louise Julia (Ruch) and Charles Brown. According to the family story, they died within days of each other when they were nine months old. The mystery is that I have yet to find documentation of either their births or their deaths. I'm still looking and have at least one clue but, as you may well imagine, there were many Brown families in Chicago between 1901 when they were married and 1920 (census information) when they are no longer living together.
