Person who died in Kentucky during the 1833 Cholera Epidemic

 

  

 

 

 

 

What is Cholera:


Cholera is an illness caused by a germ invading the bowels.  The disease is usually spread by contaminated water supplies.  The main symptom is watery diarrhea which leads to fluid depletion and death from dehydration.  Cholera has proven one of history's most virulent killers.  The cause was first identified in 1854, and it was through cholera epidemics that epidemiologists finally discovered the link between sanitation and public health, which provided the impetus for modern water and sewage systems.
 
The disease is stunning in its rapidity.  The onset of extreme diarrhea, sharp muscular cramps, vomiting and fever, and then death-all can transpire within 12-48 hours.  Fever is not one of the main symptoms however.  The great irony is that unlike many infectious diseases, cholera  is easily treated.  Death results from severe dehydration, which can be prevented with a simple and inexpensive rehydration solution. 
 
If you are traveling to cholera-endemic areas, just follow these precautions:
 
Wash your hands-thoroughly with hot soapy water, before eating or preparing food, especially when returning from public places.  Use an alcohol-based hand rub when water is not available.
 
Avoid untreated water-drink only bottled carbonated water or water you've boiled or disinfected yourself.  Hot beverages such as coffee and tea as well as bottled or canned soft drinks, and wine and beer are generally safe.  Carefully wipe the outside of all bottles and cans before you open them, and ask for drinks without ice.  Use bottled water to brush your teeth.
 
Eat your food hot-choose food that has been thoroughly cooked and is served piping hot.  Cholera bacteria can survive on room temperature food for up to five days and are not destroyed by freezing.  Best to avoid street food, but if you must buy from local vendors, make sure your meal is cooked in your presence and served hot.
 
No sushi-Avoid raw fish and seafood of all kinds.
 
If you eat fresh fruit and vegetables, make sure they are cooked or have thick skins that you can peel yourself.  Avoid lettuce because it could have been rinsed with contaminated water.
 
And last, be careful with dairy foods, avoid ice cream because it is often contaminated, and made from unpasteurized milk.
 

Following is a list of people who died in various communities of Kentucky during the Cholera Epidemic of 1833.  This is wonderful information and contains names of persons who lived in other states but were visiting Kentucky when they contracted cholera and died.

Kentucky Obituaries, 1787-1854

Compiled by G. Glenn Clift

This volume of genealogical notes together with the first book--Kentucky Marriages 1797-1865 (published in the Register April, 1938-October, 1940)-was taken from newspaper files owned by and housed in the Lexington Public Library. The original purpose of the compilation was to make the finished work available only to users of the above mentioned newspapers, in an effort to minimize usage of this valuable source material. With their publication in the Register it is hoped the records will prove of worth to a larger audience.

The obituary notices have been edited to include: (a) the name of the person deceased, (b) place of residence, (c) wife or husband, parentage or other survivor or survivors and (d) date of death. In many instances obituaries too lengthy for inclusion were published by the newspapers. Such notices have been edited for their genealogical value and the word Obituary appended, this to enable the researcher to secure the complete necrology if desirable.

For purpose of bibliography an abbreviation of the name of the newspaper from which any notice is taken is given with that notice. The notation following any obituary refers in every instance to the year named in the obituary. As below, in the first entry, KG 10/6 designates the (Lexington) Kentucky Gazette, October 6, 1787. The abbreviations used in this first installment denote: KG (Lexington) Kentucky Gazette and R. The (Lexington, Ky.) Reporter.

 

 

 

The abbreviations used denote:

O--Lexington (Kentucky) Observer

OR--Lexington (Kentucky) Observer & Reporter

R--The (Lexington, Kentucky) Reporter

Psalm 55:22 ---
You really need to read this.
"Friends are God's way of taking care of us."
This was written by a Hospice of Metro Denver physician.
 
I just had one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and wanted to share it with my family and dearest friends:
 I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to
 wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the "quickie mart" building, and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a Gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay.
 
When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her
up, and I picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel.
 

A
t that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.
 
I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying "I don't want my kids to see me crying," so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, "And you were praying?" That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, "He heard you, and He sent me."

 I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little.
 
She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City. Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan 1, and finally in desperation had
finally called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They lived in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there.
So she packed up everything she owned in the car She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.

I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, "So, are you like an angel or something?" This definitely made me cry. I said, "Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people."
 
It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.

 Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings...
 
Psalms 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved." My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, especially for the months in 2006 , and I picked you.
Please pass this to four people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.This prayer is powerful and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.

 Here is the prayer:
"Father, I ask You to bless my children, grandchildren, friends, relatives and e-mail buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace, In Jesus' precious name. Amen."
 
I know I picked more than four and you can, too.
 When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could You
 please get that for me?"
 
Being blessed is GOOD...being HIGHLY FAVORED is best!
