      Subject: Re: [jacksongenealogy] Jackson County in

      kind?    There was a scarlet fever
      epidemic in Jackson county in and around 1857.  I know
      of grave markers in several cemeteries for children/young

      adults whose ages range from 1 to 20.  My own
      family was affected by the death of two little girls. 
      45 years later, two more little girls in this family
      dressed
      up in clothes from an old trunk that still contained

      clothing of the two who died in either 1856 or 1857, and
      the
      girls who were playing dress-up in the old clothes also
      contracted scarlet fever but survived to tell of their
      childhood disease.   One was my grandmother.
