Additional material related to the drowned siblings, whose double post mortem photo is available in our member section. If you’re a Thanatos Archive member, click here to view their post mortem photo and additional info.

Note: I believe the article accidentally spelled the name wrong, which was common. The family went by Sprangers and Springers (probably an Americanized spelling).

Sixth plate daguerreotype of a little girl. The photographer used two mats to hide the fact that she was in a tiny coffin, which has been leaned against a chair and supported by a woman, whose hand is visible in the shot.
