Rosina Elisa (or Eliza) Capper

Not much is known about her. Just the record of her birth on 30th Nov. 1865, her baptism on 21st of the same year and then a record of her death on 2nd Sept. 1866. These records are in the data base FamilySearch.org offered by the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). The parents’ names are correct - John and Ann Capper - and the location ‘Gwalior, Bengal, India’ matches where John was stationed at the time, so although this birth was not recorded with the other children in the army paybook, it is certain that Rosina was their child.
