"Cute" - no??
The same thing happened with my family, the brothers Matthew (1) and Michael (2)
Karkniak both had daughters born in January 1790 and both named them Susanna - -
- (1) 23 Jan 1790 and (2) 14 Jan 1790. One of the "Susanna" children died 18
October 1792, the other is a grandparent but which one, I cannot determine.
