From time to time we have all wondered why several members of one family died within a few days, or a few weeks of each other.    This timeline that we have created from several sources serves as a guideline that might help you to figure out the answer to that question.    Epidemics have always had a great influence on people s lives and thus influencing us as well, the genealogists who are trying to trace them.  In many cases people disappeared during an epidemic by either dying because of it, or moving from the area to get away from it.
