When Dora Frost and Alan Hurlbut passed away

How Harry Vitt and Corinne Sibley came together after the deaths of their spouses and how Eola Frost came to be a second mother to three children.

Evelyn says, "This is another first cousin of mine, Sarah or Sally Hurlbut, daughter of my mother's sister Corinne. She, like Elizabeth [Conklin] has no Frost blood but descends from Brockway's Orman Sibley. I send this only because I know you like those old pictures that have a touching story. Corinne Sibley married Alan Hurlbut in 1913 and they had first a beautiful baby boy, the child died shortly, then soon Sally was born, then Corinne got word that Alan was very ill in Chicago. Of course it was the diphtheria epidemic and Alan died before she could get there (she was a nurse). This is close to the time that the two Frost children Carrie and Lawrence died and that Dora Frost died leaving Harry Vitt with the newborn Edward and dear little Jean. These deaths increased the togetherness of the Frost, Sibley, Vitt, and Eola Frost sympathy. Eola became a second mother to little Jean. Harry Vitt and Corinne Sibley Hurlbut, each broken hearted and with young children, drew together and married. I strongly remember them all and love them all."
