Am hoping someone can help me out with a situation. I'm working on a
project, and can't find the information that I am searching for. In talking
with my cousin, he's mentioned in past, about various outbreaks of diseases
in Breck. Co. that may or may not have coincided with regional/national
outbreaks of disease (ie. Influenza, typhoid fever, TB). While I paid
attention, I should have had a paper and pen to write things down as my
memory isn't all that great in some cases.
I am wondering if anyone knows of a time, or time frame, of a TB outbreak in
Breck. Co. In my ALLGOOD line, my gg-grandparents had 13 kids. The mother,
and seven of the kids (also three dau-in-laws and one grandchild) died from
TB, spanning a time frame of roughly 1890-1914. I didn't know if this
coincided with an outbreak or just what.
Would appreciate any help in sorting this out.
