Both my paternal grandpa and my maternal grandpa lost their first wives in 1918 to the flu. And one of my great-uncles was in the Army then and died from the flu.

Both of my grandpas remarried and their 2nd wives were the grandmas I grew up with since I wasn't born until 1948.


It would be interesting, and quite sad, to know the final death count for Caddo and vicinity for the years from 1918-1920.


Loss on that scale is hard to imagine. Today's global world will be crushed. I hope to never experience that.
