This list was sent to the New Orleans Picayune by Dr. Andrew R. Kilpatrick of Navasota. In the letter he said that more than half of the population of Navasota left the town on August 24th and 25th of 1867 to escape the disease. This left about 1100 in the town and only a dozen or so escaped the fever.
