Adaline (Blood) Comings (Blood-1659) had 2 sons who both died in infancy, according to the history of the town she lived in. I have not been able to find names or dates for these babies. I did put something in the biographical notes stating the above, but should I mark her childless? Or no?

If she had children I wouldn't mark her as childless, even if they died young.
