My father with his father:
Theodore Robert Dakin (Teddy) with Robert Edward Dakin (Rob)
[Ted: 11 November 1916, New Haven, CT - 20 November 1972, Berwyn, IL]
[Rob: 2 July 1888, Gaylordsville, CT - 15 December 1918, Danbury, CT]
Rob at age 30 died in 1918, when Teddy was 2.
Rob died in the Flu Pandemic the same week as his infant son Edward Evans Dakin and his mother-in-law Caroline Matilda Holstein Evans (Carrie) also died. Carrie's husband (Charles H Evans) moved in with Rob's wife, Marion Evans Dakin to act as "baby tender" when she went to school at the U of Chicago for a term to get more training leading to her becoming the first Extension Nutritionist for the State of Connecticut three years later.
