As previously mentioned, there are many books on this topic, including “The Great Influenza;  The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History ”by John M. Barry, that mentions my second cousin twice removed Alice WULOVITZ, who was a 16 year old nursing student in Philadelphia who died after two days of helping to take care of patients.

Susan:

My paternal  great grandfather who came to the US in 1913 and lived in Brooklyn died of the Spanish Flu in 1918. I have a copy of his death certificate which indicates influenza and because of the time period and previous family history I have heard I believe it was the Spanish flu. 

 

Unfortunately, there is no longer anyone in the family to verify the story or even t give me a history of what actually happened during that time. Wish there was but all if know about it is what I have read.
