Hi Bill,

I found a website that might help- it has epidemics in America from 1628-1918. The address is:
http://www.bjhughes.org/epidemic.html

There appears to have been several cholera outbreaks during the early nineteenth century, and specifically one in 1833 in Columbus. Also reported is a "fever" prevalent in 1820-23 nationwide.

Hope this helps,
Emily
