Bethany Echo; Friday, October 25, 1918
" Dalton City: the funeral services of Ruth Ann Henneberry, 8 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Henneberry, whose death was caused from pneumonia following influenza, was conducted Saturday morning at the Sacred Heart Church by Rev. Curran and burial was at St. Isidore."
NOTE: The Spanish Flu epidemic, known as a pandemic because it grew to worldwide proportions, is believed to have been born in early March 1918 when soldiers at Fort Riley, Kan., burned tons of manure. "The onset of illness for those battling Spanish influenza was quite sudden,". In a matter of mere hours, a person could go from strapping good health to being so enfeebled they could not walk. Victims complained of general weakness and severe aches in their muscles, backs, joints, and heads." PBS Report in 1998.
Major cities provided a killing field for the virus with 1,000 people dying in Boston by the end of September 1918. Philadelphia fared much worse, losing more than 4,500 residents to the Spanish influenza by late October. The death toll rose to nearly 13,000 in that city alone. In San Francisco, which had the added stress of watching the deadly illness as it moved west, the dead from the influenza epidemic numbered more than 3,500 by the end of 1918. "I had a little bird, Its name was Enza. I opened the window, And in-flu-enza."
Worldwide, the epidemic killed 20 million to 40 million people. In the United States, estimates place the death toll at 500,000 to more than 675,000. As a comparison, fewer than 300,000 Americans lost their lives serving in the armed forces during World War II.
