    3. I find this very interesting. I had never thought about disease in Texas during that time. I went back to check and found that my great grandfather's brother, George Henry Dorsey, died at the age of 10 on Dec 25, 1871, in Refugio, Texas. Now I am curious and will have to check this out to see what I can find out about his death. He is the only one of ten children to die as a child and never reach adulthood.
