The whole Harvey household was sickened in the Influenza pandemic of 1918. Being so sick they were unable to feed themselves, the neighboring Hassell family broke the quarantine and brought food and water in through the windows. By the time Alice passed, the rest of the Harvey household had recovered enough to attend her funeral, except Carrie, who was so sick they expected to be gone by the time they returned, but miraculously she recovered as well.
