Comment Top & Middle: Illustrated side of a mourning card printed to mark the passing of Marhta Ann Holmes.
It was the custom to present these cards to mourners at a funeral in remembrance of the deceased.
On the reverse are details of her death and internment.

Bottom: A mourning card to commemorate the death of Hannah Maria Holmes, daughter of John Walker and Martha Ann Holmes.
Presumably virulent illness or an accident caused the deaths of Hannah and her mother Martha as they died on the same day and were interred at the same time.

This a copy of my ancestors mourning cards .it was actually a really sad outcome any one wanting to know what happened may contact me thanks annette
