Rhoda Crosley Clark

I am working on updating some files for the above.
Rhoda's second marriage to Johnson Clark produced quite a few children, 4 of which all died within one week of each other - January 1853.

Two of the children were teenagers, two were under the age of ten.

I find this information incredible and hard to imagine.
Here in California in the 1880's we had an epidemic of Diptheria. I am wondering if something similar happened in Indiana.

Any information on why these children all died so close together would sure be helpful.

The only source I have for this particular data is an entry from WFT Vol 13- and quite honestly, do not trust this as being accurate.

Thanks,
Martha A Crosley Graham
