One of the most remarkable series of typhoid fever cases that one family has probably ever had to contend with in this vicinity is that of the family of Mr. and Mrs. John Anthony of Argyle, Iowa. Two sons died within the past two months and three more of their children are down at the present time with this dread malady, one of whom is hardly expected to survive the ravages of the decease. Two months ago Ed. Anthony died of typhoid at age 22. Last Sat. Ora Anthony died at age 20. His funeral was held Mon. burial in Meek cemetery. Geo. Anthony, 25 has been down four weeks. Now one of the little girls, age 13 has been sick. ~ Iowa Journal, 16 Jan 1908, Montrose, Iowa. obtained from
