« Sex, Lies, and Idiots | Main | A Bunny Tale »



When we lived in the Denver area (from 1990 to 2005)we searched for ghost towns in the mountains and also visited graveyards and did grave rubbings there. It was so interesting to us to find out exactly what you described today -- that many, many children died at very early ages, mostly from flu, typhoid, diptheria and accidents. Many women died at childbirth or soon after and many miners were killed in mine accidents, sometimes as many as twenty or so at a time. Of course, there were no antibiotics or vaccines in those days and many times there was no doctor in the towns.
