I have noticed several members of my family seemed to have died about 1867. It seemed that several members in the same family disappeared about the same time, making me think there must have been some illness at the time in the area. In the 1870 census, many of the children had been put with other families. I have also noticed many were buried about that time on private land rather than being buried in a cemetery as other family members were. Could somone shed some light on this?
