William Ervin Comstock was one of 7 to die in his family and wife's family in the 1918 flu epidemic. Will died the day before his wife on Dec 1. His daughter Juanita would die 20 days later.
Something that my uncle Jewel Parks(Aunt Margie's husband) told me was that Aunt Margie's parents had a buggy with rubber ties instead of just wooden wheels. And he said in those days, you needed to "have money" to afford rubber wheels on your wagon.
