Vevay Burials – August 1866

The following list of burials for August 1866 in Vevay, Switzerland County, Indiana, appeared in:
Vevay Reveille – 23 Aug 1866 – Page 2, Column 1

THE CHOLERA IN VEVAY

Only one death from the disease—No new cases—Total number of deaths in Vevay from August 1st to August 22d—The causes of their death, age–&c., &c.

Many foolish and ludicrous stories have been put in circulation in regard to the ravages of the terrible disease known as Asiatic Cholera, in this place. These stories are misrepresentations, and are circulated by persons who are excited and frightened. Of course these alarmists deceive no one who lives in this place, but persons in the country may be led to believe that Cholera is an epidemic in our city, but we can assure them that such is not the case.

It is not our intention to deceive the people, but to give the facts. In order to do this we requested Mr. Wm. Smith, Superintendent of the Vevay Grave-yard, to furnish us with the names, age, and cause of death, of persons who have been buried in the Vevay Grave-yard during the present month. Mr. S. has kindly complied with our request; and it is as follows:

  • Daniel Day, aged 67 years—August 4th; of Cholera morbus.
  • Henry Sockwell, Sen., aged 83 years—August 7th; of old age.
  • Ella Holder, aged 10 months and 14 days—August 6th; of Brain Fever.
  • Mary L. Jockel, aged 3 years and 6 months—August 14th; of Cholera-infantum.
  • Miner Jennings, aged 76 years—August 17th; of Cholera morbus.
  • Mrs. Rachel A. Knox, aged 27 years, 4 months, and 2 days—August 17th; of Cholera morbus.
  • Mrs. Ludwena Baumgartner, aged 53 years and 1 month—August 19th; of Cholera morbus.
  • George Baumgartner, aged 58 years—August 20th; of Cholera.

From the above it will be seen that but one death has resulted from Cholera in this place.

This place has never been so clean as at present. Indeed, we do not believe there is a cleaner city in the United States than Vevay. Our citizens are indebted to the City Council for their promptness in passing health ordinances, and to A. Stow, Health Officer, for the energy and promptness with which he has, and is, enforcing them.

There is no occasion for alarm, if people will strictly observe the laws of health, and keep their premises clean. Don’t eat cucumbers or cabbage, and be careful that other vegetables that you eat are properly cooked. If you eat raw apples, pears, peaches, and other fruits, see that they are thoroughly ripe and fresh. Don’t drink butter-milk after eating any kind of fruit. Avoid fresh fish. If you are attacked with the diarrhea, visit a physician and have it checked immediately; neglecting to do this may cause you to loose your life. Ponds of water should be filled up; rooms and cellers well ventilated; privies should be disinfected by lime and copperas. Every man, woman and child should bathe in water at least once a week; even if you should escape the cholera, you may catch the itch by neglecting to do this.

We will state that at the time of our going to press, (Wednesday evening,) there is not a case of Cholera, or Cholera-morbus in this city.
