It is totally possible that both children passed on the same day from the same illness.

Many children were lost in childhood.  On the 1900 and 1910 U.S. census each married woman was asked how many children she had given birth to and how many were living.  The numbers of children lost (especially of some foreign born) were shockingly high.

An accident involving both children is also possible.  Candles started fires, farming equipment was dangerous to be around, etc.

Unless the records indicate a cause of death than you may never know with certainty what happened.
