  1. The Flu epidemic was in the year 1919. It was very bad in this district often two and three died out of the one house, often all the people of the house was sick together, even there would not be any person to tend the sick, or give them s drink of water. Some people got out of it and others did not, whiskey was the bedt cure but if it was. It was very scarce and dear because it was after the War. Often three coffins were ordered in the same house, there did more people die during the flu, than what were killed during the war.
