Does anyone know where I can learn about what fatal diseases were prevalent in Maine in the late 18th and early 19th centuries? I imagine that some of the folks I am researching who disappeared from the record succumbed to some sort of communicable disease.
I'd like to learn about any common diseases (tuberculosis comes to mind), statistics for where and when they occurred. My ancestors were from Lincoln County.
Thanks for any advice or information.
