  1. Undoubtedly victims of the Great Flu epidemic, which was raging that year…

  2. Since they both died in 1918, it was probably from the “Spanish Flu” epidemic. We don’t hear about it much now, but a HUGE number of people in the U.S. died from that epidemic.

  3. This is my family…Wow, what a wonderful find!! I am not sure what they died of but I am sure I can find out. Thank you for posting this.
