Jacob and Elva suffered through many tragedies in their lives. This was one of the first children they would lose through early deaths.

Charles Edison Benedictís Early Years_

I am sure this was a very active and curious little boy who loved to be outdoors on beautiful June days. He accompanied his 10 year old cousin, Fraser, to the local Lily Pond, in Belmont, to try out a small homemade boat. Both boys drowned that day, which caused the entire community to mourn the loss of two very young lives.
