Recently I came across some old pictures, one of which showed a very young
child in her casket. This was the only picture ever taken of my mother's
oldest sister who died about 1899-1900 at the age of 14 months. The cause
of death was shown as "Summer Complaint". Can anyone give me an idea of
just what this term meant.
