Little Know fact

The 1918 flu pandemic -  This was the Spanish Flu and it is estimated that 50 - 100 million people died from between March of 1918 and June of 1920.  This flue was unusual in that it targeted strong health individuals and left the week, young and old, mostly untouched.  Studies show that the virus kills via "cytokine storm"  which means it causes a overreaction of the body's immune system.  The following people in our family line died during that time period.  The ones in blue are likely to have died from the flu while the others where too old or too young and probably died of other causes:

Dedrick H. Meyer     26
Lucy E. Meyer     21
It has been told that Henry died as the result of helping fight a fire and left Lucy (Burnett) a widow at age 31.  I show Henry and Lucy marrying prior to 1875.  That would make him 23 and her 17.  Brunno David Meyer was born Feb 1, 1876, then John Henry Myer (note name change) was born July 15, 1880 in GA.  Leler Jane Myer was born March 4, 1882 (but I show her born on Round Mountain in Cherokee, AL.)  That means they would have had to move to Alabama after the 1880 census and before Leler Jane was born in 82.  Then Tommas Adkerson Meyer was born Feb 5, 1884 in Round Mountain. Then Dora Lou Myer abt 1887 in Round Mountain, AL.  Then I show that Dedrich Homer Myer (the kids' 2nd great-grandfather) was born in Madison, Morgan, GA March 24, 1889 just about 3 weeks before his father Henry's death in Winterville GA on April 11, 1889.  The family must have moved back to GA for work, then after Henry's death, moved back to Alabama to stay.  Of course, the 1890 census is lost, but I show Lucy in Round Mountain in 1900, Lookout Al in 1910, Tucker AL in 1920 and Tucker the year of her death in 1930.  The above 1880 census doesn't show Brunno.  He should have been 4 years old if he was born in 1876.
