One side of the tombstone monument at Forest Lawn Cemetary reads;
Willie Rumrill, son of Henry And Melissa Rumrill
died March 6, 1857 Aged 7 months
and below this
Charlie's dates cannot be read on the weathered stone. Family notes indicate he was born in 1855. His date of death is uncertain.
photograph is from the family album of his sister Annette Runrill, and is labeled Charlie.
"Charlie" is noted to have been the eldest son of Henry and Melissa Rumrill. On the same side of the Rumrill monument, but inscribed above Charlie's engraving is that of his brother Willie. We know from cemetery records that Charlie died in 1859 and that Willie died in 1857. This raises the possibility that Charlie outlived his younger brother by two years, but we do not have the date of birth of either of Henry and Melissa's sons whose names are inscribed on this side of the monument. The inscription says that Willie was 7 months old when he died on March 6, 1857.
