Well there is a story in my family about one of my great grandmothers. I will tell you all the story as honestly as I remember hearing it. My great grandmother was born in England as was her husband. My grandmother was probably her youngest daughter.
Well my great grandmother and her husband had a daughter named Annie. Annie caught what they called the 'croup' but the medical term for what she caught was diphtheria. As a matter of fact Laura
Ingalls Wilder and her husband Almanzo Wilder also caught this disease and it almost killed them.|
Unfortunately however it did kill Annie when she
was about two or three years old. She died in 1872 in Fall River MA. Her mother Sarah heard her making a noise and got out of bed and went into her room.|
She had to light a kerosene lamp in those days and by the time she had it lit Annie had died. Her mother Sarah (my great grandmother) had a hard time getting over her daughter's death... And one night when she was all alone in the house and those who were out came back she told them that she had seen her daughter.
