Daisy Louisa (Young) Wall died exactly 2 weeks after her daughter was
born and cause
given was Puerperal Fever (happened quite often after childbirth) -
Fanny Maria (Hartery) Young died Jan. 1901 of Bronchitis
Lilian Daisy Wall died in July 1902 of Broncho-pneumonia
Herbert / Thomas Young died in May 1904 of Arterial Degeneration Cardiac
It was another 40 years before we had penicillin or antibiotics which
probably would have
helped the first 3 people.
