1867 YELLOW FEVER EPIDEMIC
Galveston County, Texas

line

The great yellow fever epidemic is considered one of Texas’s worst disasters as entire families, towns and areas were wiped out from the disease. It is supposed that over 3000 people lost their lives to this epidemic, and whole families were wiped out in Galveston and Harris Counties. The listing below is a partial listing of the interments for Galveston County during that epidemic.

Yellow Fever in Houston
Mortuary Report


We take the following items in reference to the epidemic at Houston, from the Telegraph:
Notwithstanding the daily mortuary report does not exhibit any marked increase, yet the fever is steadily spreading throughout the city. The number of cases will doubtless exceed 700. the mortality, when we consider the number of cases, is very light. The total number of deaths from yellow fever since its advent on the 12th of August, to the 14th of September, has been 105, which will not make an average of four per day. Some of our most experienced citizens think the fever has reached its height, but a reference to the record of past years will hardly bear them out in this opinion. In 1859 the first case occurred on the 12th of September, and near the middle of October the mortality reached its highest figures, from 15 to 24 per day. There is no second reason to believe that this season will prove an exception to others.
The sudden and unexpected death of Dr. J. R. Hand is cause of deep regret among his friends, of whom he had made many during his short residence among us.
Mr. Bawsel, deputy postmaster, and Captain Wallace, assessor and collector, who both died of the prevailing fever day before yesterday, had made many friends in our midst, and went to their graves deeply regretted.
No cases of sickness have excited more sympathy in this community, than those of Colonel O'Connell, post commandant, his lady and their little son, all sick at once. She was urged to leave, her delicate condition requiring it, but she resolutely refused. He was taken down, then she, and then the little boy. If they can be saved they will be.

Major General Charles Griffin
It is with sincere sorrow that our citizens have been called upon to pay the last rites of humanity to Brevet Major General Charles Griffin, who died while commanding Military District No. 5. General Griffin was about 40 years of age, having been born in the year 1827, in the State of Georgia. He claimed Newark, Ohio, for his home. He graduated from West Point, in the class of July 1847, when he was appointed Brevet Second Lieutenant 4th Artillery. His assignment to the artillery arm of the service, indicates fair scientific attainments. He was with General Sidney Johns in the expedition to Utah. His name was among the first on the list of promotions made at the outbreak of the war. On the 25th April, 1861, he was made a Captain. From this he rose rapidly till the 13th March, 1865, when he was brevetted a Major General of the United States army, for gallantry at the various battles which preceded that date. General Griffin spent the entire prime of the war with the army of the Potomac, where subordinate Generals had not the opportunity of that personal distinction which those of the West enjoyed. They were seldom blessed with independent commands and their exploits went to make up the heroic whole and were last in the general blaze of glory. While in the West, the small expeditions constantly on foot, gave opportunity for individual distinction. He was an active fighter in more than thirty battles, and won from General Grant the praise of a gallant officer. At the battle of Five Forks General Sheridan relieved General Warren from the command of his corps and gave it to General Griffin who fought well for the balance of the day. He was selected by General Grant for the command of Texas and told that he could stay here as long as he pleased. On the relief of General Sheridan he became temporary commander of the District. General Griffin died on Sunday at a few minutes of eleven in the morning. There cannot be a doubt but that his disease was aggravated by the cares of his position and by grief for the loss of his only son. Among our citizens we have heard no expression but that of deep sorrow at the death of this brave soldier. Political differences have not been suffered to enter their minds, and his widow is the recipient of their sympathy. There is also a feeling of regret that the General did not in the early stage of his disease call to his assistance the experience of old Texas nurses and physicians; for, no matter how skillful others may be, or learned in the lore of the profession, nothing can supply that experience which alone makes a man master of the yellow fever. But it is useless to speculate upon what might have been the result, the General is dead and the armies of the United States have lost a brave soldier and a gallant officer.

Fever in Hempstead

Sickness has been more or less in town since the death of Mr. Voorhies, but of such a nature only as is incident to persons this season of the year. The disease now prevalent did not develop itself, however, until Saturday last, when the death of Mrs. Stevenson and the numbers that were taken sick began to excite alarm. On Sunday morning the death of F. M. Miller, one of the Board of Registration, was announced, and which more confirmed the impression fast gaining ground. On Monday a general move by nearly all the citizens not sick, was made into the country, the roads being lined in every direction wit every available conveyance.
The deaths of J. L. Hollowell and ---- Loudermilk were announced on Tuesday.
The deaths from yellow fever to date number 12. We have no available mode of getting any correct report of the age of several of the parties deceased, the only convenience for getting the report as it is being through the kindness of Messrs. Shandler & Van Vacten:

Wednesday, Sept. 4th, Mrs. Stevenson
Saturday, Sept. 7th, Freedman's child
Sunday, Sept. 8th, F. E. Miller
Monday, Sept. 9th, J. Conner
Tuesday, Sept. 10th, J. L. Hollowell
Same day, ---- Loudermilk
Wednesday, Sept. 11th, Miss Mary Green, aged 15 years
Thursday, Sept. 12th, daughter of Mr. D. H. Coleman
Same day, ---- Kaiser, a native of Switzerland
Same day, Nannie Wright, daughter of Mr. Wm. Wright
Friday, Sept. 18th, Maj. J. E. Green
Same day, Mrs. D. H. Coleman
Same day, Thomas McGhee

Scarcely a family left in town is free from fever, and we hear that some of the persons that went out in the country are down also. ---- Texas Countryman, 11th inst.
