Ida E. named for her grandmother, Elizabeth Smith Branch, was the pride and joy of her parents as the sixth child and the only one to live past the first year or two.
Died, age 24, of Consumption￼ as recorded Book 2 page 275, county deaths. Her father died of the same disease a few years later. Many members of the Branch family died of Consumption in this period. They did not know the disease was infectious. A person with active but untreated tuberculosis can infect 10–15 other people per year. And they didn't know how to treat it then.
In the past, tuberculosis was called consumption, because it seemed to consume people from within, with a bloody cough, fever, pallor, and long relentless wasting. Symptoms include chest pain, coughing up blood, and a productive, prolonged cough for more than three weeks. Systemic symptoms include fever, chills, night sweats, appetite loss, weight loss, pallor, and often a tendency to fatigue very easily.
