Sentimental Sunday: Brother and Sister, 1900

Mark's cousin Tom recently e-mailed this lovely photograph of their grandfather, Tandy Clayton Moore (1878–1964), and great aunt, Beulah Burtice Moore Street (1885-1904).  The photograph was probably taken around 1900.  Beulah married Joe Street on October 12, 1902, in Denton, Texas.  She gave birth to son Burt on January 12, 1904, but sadly she died of pneumonia on March 16 of that year.  Tandy's and Beulah's father, Thomas Jefferson Moore, also died of pneumonia eight days later.  They are both buried in the Old Shiloh Cemetery near Flower Mound in Denton County, Texas.  Burt later contracted diphtheria and became deaf; the 1920 census shows him living at the Texas School for the Deaf in Austin as a pupil.
