      Hi fellow Howard researchers,
      This is a FYI, forwarded from another list. There was a major outbreak
      of typhoid fever among the men returning, from the war in Cuba, to Montauk
      Point, New York. Many deaths resulted. Hope it helps someone searching for
      information on their HOWARD ancestor.

      Deaths ~­ 21 Sept 1898, ­ (Brooklyn, NY) Daily Star [HOWARD]

      Another Soldier Dead.
      He Was A Member of Captain RAFFERTY's Company.
      Joseph J. HOWARD, a member of Captain RAFFERTY's Company F, of the
      Seventy-first Regiment died early Wednesday morning at the home of his
      cousin, Martin CARROLL, 176 Eighth street. The deceased soldier was with
      his regiment all through the Santiago campaign and went to Montauk Point
      with the others. Three days before the regiment came to New York he secured
      furlough and came to Long Island City and went to the home of Mr. CARROLL.
      He was attended by Dr. MC KEOWN and was ill for two weeks. After that he
      was in fairly good health until Monday evening when he was taken with an
      acute attack of dysentery. He rapidly grew worse in spite of all that was
      done for him.
      Young HOWARD was twenty-seven years of age. He was raised in Ireland and
      came to America three and a half years ago, and from the time of his arrival
      up to the departure of the regiment had lived with his cousin. He was
      engaged to be married to Miss CROWE and the wedding was to take place in
      November. The lady came from Ireland a short time ago. The funeral will be
      held from St. Mary¹s Church on Friday morning. A solemn requiem mass will
      be celebrated at 10 o'clock and the interment will be with
      military honors in Calvary Cemetery.
