I agree. Her poor mother, Charlotte was left to raise a family. It was so good for the whole family when Fredrick Holbrook came along. No wonder Caroline name baby Feddie after him.

Of course it must have been hard for her to loss her Pa when she was a girl. But children were used - as cruel as this word could sound - to loss parents and maybe two or three of their sibling when they were little. And they seemed not to have very serious mental damages... scratchead

Even today in many parts of the world, so many children lose so many family members at young ages. One difference, I think, compared with a lot of western countries, is that the extended family typically is more important. So the child's whole life is not necessarily centered around mommy or daddy, but around the whole extended family, perhaps including uncles and aunties, of which there may be many. Not saying that the death of a parent does not affect them, but I do wonder if it is harder in places where the nuclear family is much more the focus of family life.

Time passes by directed by gravity lines and the world may be different back then but the innocence and fragility of a child is universal to every age of mankind, no normal child could ever possibly accept how easily we can die. thanks for understanding Gin
