***ASSUMMED*** Burial as a victim of the yellow fever epidemic of 1878.

Yellow fever is an acute systemic illness - a hemorrhagic fever - caused by the Flavivirus. Acute means it comes on (onset) rapidly, while systemic means it affects the whole body. In severe cases yellow fever causes a high fever, bleeding into the skin and the death of cells in the liver and kidney. Liver damage results in severe jaundice - yellowing of the skin; hence the name "yellow fever".
The Hickman Courier newspaper, Hickman, Fulton County, KY
13 September 1878; Page 5, Column 1


Total Number of Deaths 153
