PLEASE,has anyone info. on provision during 19th.C..?? My GGgma.left her family in Rox'sire and went to North Northumberland- near Scremerston-where she died of typhus in 1840. Were there no local hospitals? What was the 'mechanism' for the poor (e.g. ag. labs.)?
Thanks,Elma-for your response:I don't have my file with me at the moment; she's Elizabeth Huggan (nee White);b.1840ish;till recently,I thought her,maybe, with an elderly White couple,who show up at S. in C.1841-as Scots!! Since,however, I've located an ISOLATION HOSPITAL at S. MORE LATER. Regards. Ian Blackie..
