Some Ayrshire Deaths 1870

Transcribed by George McCaig 


I knew that Phthisis, what we now know as Tuberculosis, was a major cause of death in the 1800's so I did a tally on the cause of death for the 144 items I copied. Phthisis was the cause of death for 18, but surprisingly to me, 13 died from Bronchitis. 10 from Scarlet Fever, 7 from Measles, 6 from Consumption, and 3 from Cancer. I think this would fairly represent causes of death for all of Ayrshire. Just an interesting observation.
