Jefferson Davis' Sons Did Not live Long

From Find-A-Grave.

Jefferson Davis and his wife Varina had six children.  The two girls lived much longer than the five boys.

Samuel Emory Davis (1852-1854)
Margaret Howell Davis-Hayes (1855-1909)
Jefferson Davis, Jr. (1857-1878)

Joseph Evan Davis (1859-1864)
William Howell Davis (1861-1871)
Varina Anne Davis (1864-1898)

Their mother was Varina Anne Banks Howell Davis (1826-1906).

All these deaths remind me of the sadness the Lincolns suffered over the deaths of all but one of their sons.
