A-Z Challenge 2016: Y is for Young Child Murch
Have you read my 'C' post: 'C is for Child Murch buried 1750'?  It dealt with the sad circumstance where a 'child of Gideon Murch' was buried in 1750 without so much as a name - and of course, no gender either, so I don't even know if I'm mourning a 5 x great-uncle or a 5x great-aunt.

Well, it happened again - and to the same family. In 1754 another of Gideon and Elizabeth's children was buried (on 30 October).  Yet, once again, frustratingly it was given neither a name nor a gender:

(Yes, it's the same clerk as before.)  He does write 'infant' against somebody else's entry, so Gideon's 'young child' may not have been a new baby.  But that's all I know at the moment. *sigh*
