UPDATE 10/19/2013: As I've gone through these posts, I keep looking at the 1918/1919 death dates for possible Influenza Epidemic victims.  I recently found an obituary for Mayme A. (Wilson) Dillman that claims she died of influenza on this date, and that her husband Ernest E. Dillman died of it the following day.  It also states that all four of their daughters had it, but survived, and were taken in my Ernest's parents, Joseph and Nettie Dillman.  As you can see by today's entry, Ernest E. Dillman did indeed die shortly after Mayme, but either the date was misreported in the obituary, or I have mis-entered it, or something.  Here he is today.
