"Kentucky Obituaries 1787-1854"  by G. Glenn Clift, Genealogical Publishing company 2000  This book was a reprint authorized by the Kentucky Historical Society and was taken from newspaper files owned by and housed in the Lexington Public Library.  You will note by the below, that a major cholera outbreak occurred  in approximately 1883.  It was fairly common before the days of modern hygiene practices and could wipe out whole families and even entire towns.  According to Wikipedia, it is a disease that is water borne and was ingested through drinking water.  It could also be attributed to eating partially cooked fish.  It is known to have originated in India and spread rapidly through Europe and England in 1832.  It reached this continent through Canada and New York and spread west and south from there.  Literally thousands of people all over the world died from this disease.  Filtering and chlorinating the water now makes this disease less likely to occur.  Cholera caused extreme fluid loses through vomiting and diarrhea, leaving its victims with excruciating muscle cramps and fever, which led to loss of potassium and dehydration.  The ultimate death was caused by the shock to the victim's system and a few other issues too gross to discuss.  In short, it was a nasty way to die.

"Cemeteries of Campbell County, Tennessee, History in Stone" by Dorothy Bruce, Jefferson Printing Company, Jefferson City, Tennessee - 1989.  This is a listing of the various tombstones located throughout Campbell County.  I especially like what the author said of cemeteries....She called them "an outdoor museum" indicating they reflected the culture of the people, their values, their beliefs, their customs and their craftsmanship.  She reminds us that these are places for the living to have a reunion with loved ones, to meditate and relax.  If you have family members in this area, this is a "MUST HAVE" book for your library.
