On This Day - Jan 5th

On This Day...

1836 - Birth: Mary Elizabeth Roberson, Crawford County, Indiana
1904 - Death: Martin Kunkel, Davenport, Scott County, Iowa
1905 - Marriage: Samuel George Gates and Aldia Almira Alda Erskins, Winn Parish, Louisiana
1906 - Death: Anna Mary Kraemer, Saint Cloud, Stearns County, Minnesota
1908 - Birth: Oscar Hamilton Webb,
1992 - Death: Iva Gennett Beaudreau,

Another very short list.  Look at the interesting cluster of years - one very early outlier, one very late, the rest in a short span, relatively speaking.  Widely differing locales, so probably not related in any way, but if the year had been 1917-1919, one might have suspected the great influenza epidemic.  That might be something to watch for in future lists!
