Wednesday's Child - Dyer Infants

Dyer Infant Boys
Died Four Months Apart in 1851
Redwood Cemetery
Oneida, Madison County, NY

These two older graves sit by themselves to the left and behind the adults in the Dyer/Tuttle Family plot. Burton H. Dyer was my gr-gr-gr-grandfather and he  and his wife are also buried in Redwood Cemetery to the front of the boys.

The stone to the left is inscribed:

 Burton H. Dyer

The stone to the right is inscribed:
Little G A R Dyer
