As I have been working on this project I found something very interesting which got me to thinking.
There are many records for stillborn babies & prematurely born babies who died during the time period of 1918-1919. I came across a few (see sample below) which indicate that the cause of death was due to the mother suffering from influenzia.
I wonder if all the statics we read about the thousands who died in the US from the 1918-1919 epidemic include the stillborn and prematurely born babies who died? Also how many of the stillborn births were as a result of a mother having influenzia but a Doctor or corner did not indicate the mother's sickness on the death record of the infant?
