William A. Reed family

My g-g-g-grandfather was William A. Reed. He was married to Mary Huston Reed and they had nine children between the years 1849 and 1864, all in Henry County, IA. In 1862, 3 of his children died, two in February and one in in November.
Can anyone tell me what was happening in that year to kill these children? Flu epedemic? Just curious. Thanks.
