Oneonta Herald Death Notices 1853-1861

Death & Marriage Notices
Oneonta Herald
Starting March 16, 1853
Compiled and Contributed by
 Sandy Goodspeed 
 This evening, I've been going through a few years of these
Marriage and Death Notices.  I've only included a few of the MANY 
Death Notices here to emphasize how grateful I am to be living in the present. 

No matter how imperfect our modern medicine is, we can be so very 
thankful for the progress that has occurred since these years noted

To see so many young people die of consumption, scarlatina, typhoid
fever, diptheria, and other diseases is heart breaking.  I can't even fathom
losing 3 children to a disease like diptheria, one right after another, let 
alone seeing the torture they would go through. 
I'm not sure if putrid sore throat is also diptheria.  It might be. 
We can be so thankful that we live in the age that we do.  Donna
