  • Notes 
    • Tombstone reads 1832-1913; I believe the 1832 birth year is correct. the 1850 census for Gillam Twp was taken on 21 Aug 1850, and it says she is 18.

      1900,1910 census, Jasper Co., Gillam Twp, living with Martha and James Reed.

      distinguished by the occurrence of albumin and renal casts in the urine.
      Several varieties of Bright's disease are now recognised, differing in the
      part of the kidney involved, and in the intensity and course of the morbid
      process.

      Origin: From Dr. Bright of London, who first described it.
