December Birthdays & Anniversaries

I think December would have been a hard month to have a newborn baby in the house, especially in the 1800s and early 1900s.  Christmases past may not have been as busy and hectic as they are now but keeping a baby warm in winter's cold and washing and drying diapers couldn't have been easy.

Of the individuals below, Emma Doyle (born 1886) and Hazel Doyle were sisters and Gust Doyle was their brother.  Tressa Hazel Doyle was Gust Doyle's daughter.  It was a busy month for the Doyles!
