Comparing Today’s COVID-19 To 1918 Flu Pandemic In Indiana

As bad as the current COVID-19 pandemic is for Hoosiers and the economy, in the future it may be viewed as an inconvenience when compared with the deaths from H1N1 bird flu pandemic of 1918-1919. The flu then was called Spanish Flu even though there is no evidence that it originated in Spain.
Statewide 350,000 Hoosiers were afflicted by the seasonal influenza that claimed the lives of 14,120. As of this writing there are just over 13,000 cases of COVID-19 and a total of just over 700 deaths. Nationwide 675,000 Americans died in a six-month period from September 1918 to March 1919.
Spread of the disease was perhaps made worse by the reaction in some quarters to preventing its spread. In what clearly could be called deja vu to present day, public health officials encouraged quarantines for people and the prohibition of large public gatherings including school, work and church. While there was some resistance from Indiana schools being called off, some churches continued to hold worship services spreading the flu.
There was even public disagreement about the value of cloth face masks that were distributed en masse by the Red Cross and other community organizations.
The state recorded its first flu contamination in September 1918. Since there was no vaccine for the flu, like today’s COVID-19, infections and deaths grew quickly.
And as the number of flu cases rapidly grew, like today, there were many who remained skeptical about the seriousness of the flu or the methods to prevent it.
While the growing flu epidemic was front-page news in many daily newspapers of the time, stories were run far below ongoing coverage of World War I in Europe.
Health departments ordered residents to place placards in the front yards of families who had members sick with the flu. And there was the continued rise in deaths as dozens and eventually hundreds of people fell ill and died.
Newspapers carried stories that indicated that of the more than 3,200 deaths statewide in less than two months, more than half of the affected were between the ages of 20 and 40, resulting in more than 3,000 Indiana children being made orphans.
Before the Indiana influenza pandemic was over, more than 150,000 Indiana residents were infected with influenza between September 8, 1918, and March 15, 1919. Statewide, 14,120 Hoosiers died, 1,632 of them in Indianapolis during that period.

1918 Flu Killed Four Members Of Crothersville Family Within A Week

At a time when the funeral home in Crothersville averaged 3 funerals during a typical November, that month in 1918—the peak of the Spanish Flu pandemic 102 years ago—there were 19 local deaths, according to funeral records from the old Kovener & Son Funeral Home.
Four of those deaths occurred within a week for the James & Lena Langdon family who resided southeast of Crothersville on Moore Street.
On Nov. 13, 14-year old Elva Langdon succumbed to the flu. On Nov. 18, 17-year-old Gladys R. Langdon died of thee disease. Then 20-year-old Fay Langdon and the children’s father, 47-year old James Langdon perished due to influenza the same day on Nov. 19.
James Langdon’s grandson, 82-year old Robert ‘Nute’ Langdon resides on US 31 north of Crothersville.
“My dad, Estes Langdon, and his brother Morris, survived the flu because my Dad said their mother covered them with lard and kerosene,” said Robert Langdon. “Whether or not that home remedy really worked, my dad said that is what saved them.”
The mother and two sons of the Langdon family who survived the pandemic lived long lives. “My grandmother lived into her 90’s when she passed,” said the current day Langdon.
The first local funeral attributed to flu occurred Oct. 9, 1918 when Leabert Huckleberry, 25, a soldier died of flu at Camp Taylor, Kentucky. He was brought back to the area and his family buried him in Mt. Eden Cemetery in Washington County.
The first flu death in Indiana occurred earlier in September 1918 when a soldier who had returned from fighting in World War I Europe died of influenza in Evansville leading some to believe that servicemen coming back from the war contributed to the spread of influenza.
In the early part of the 20th century, there was no vaccine to prevent the flu and no medicines to treat it other than home remedies.
Locally, the flu claimed mostly children. The first Crothersville flu death was on Nov. 7 when three-year-old Voneta Tomlinson died. From that point, November 1918—the traditional time of Thanksgiving— was anything but a month to be thankful as the death toll due to influenza ravaged the small community in southeast Jackson County.
Those who died were:
Nov. 9: Pauline Collins, age 19
Nov. 13: Elva Langdon, age 14
Nov. 18: Gladys Langdon, age 17
Nov. 19: Fay Langdon, age 20
Nov. 19: James Langdon, age 47
Nov. 23: Winnogine and Bernidine Baxter, one year old twin sisters.
Nov. 26: Alvah Davis, age 6
Nov. 28: Viola Franklin, age 9
Nov. 28: Mildred May Cargell, age 1
Nov. 28: Jessy Lena Conway, age 42
Nov. 29: Horace Smith, 7 days old.
Dec. 2: Ishmael H. Baxter, age 5
Dec. 6: Mary Louise Shirley, age 31.
Dec. 7: Ethel Alberta Morgan, age 17.
Dec. 14: Katheryn Pauline Berry, 8 months
The new year of 1919 brought an additional death when 52-year old Catherine Rider succumbed to influenza on January 22. That brought to an end the Crothersville influenza necrology which no doubt played out in every community in Indiana until over 14,000 Hoosiers were buried as a result of the pandemic.

Primary Voting Will Be Much Different Than We’re Accustomed

The primary election, which has been pushed back to June 2, is shaping up to be highly unusual, with widespread mail-in voting being encouraged and limited early in-person voting prior to Election Day.
Election officials are encouraging voters to use mail-in ballots, limiting in-person contact because of the coronavirus threat.
Both county clerks in Scott and Jackson County have already begun sending out mail-in ballots to voters who have requested them. Although voting by mail is strongly recommended by state and local election officials, it is not the default. Voters will need to request a mail-in ballot.
In-person voting will also be available, although the Indiana Election Commission has limited early voting to one week, May 26 through June 1, in addition to in-person voting on Election Day, June 2.
In order to make sure they are able to vote in the primary election, voters must be registered by next Tuesday, May 5. Residents who have an Indiana drivers’ license or another form of state-issued identification may register online at indianavoters.com. Voter registration status can also be checked using the website.
A mail-in ballot can also be requested at indianavoters.com, or by calling the county clerk’s office. Ballots must be requested by May 21.
The Indiana Election Division decided to allow all voters to vote via mail without providing a reason, as is traditionally required, as part of a slate of policy changes intended to make voting easier amid the pandemic.
During in-person voting, voters will be required to practice social distancing, and personal protective equipment will be provided to poll workers.
In Scott County in-person voting will take place from May 26-June 1 in the Commissioners Room on the first floor of the courthouse. Voters will need to bring their driver’s license, enter the east door of the courthouse, go through a security check before proceeding to vote in the commissioners’ room.
Information on in-person voting in Jackson County will be available once details are finalized, County Clerk Melissa Hayes said.
All rule changes apply to the primary election only. No changes have yet been made to procedures for the general election in November.

KEY DATES
May 5: Last day to register to vote in the primary election
May 21: Last day to request a mail-in ballot

Calls For Medical Emergencies Result In Two Drug Arrests In Austin

Scott County County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to assist with medical emergencies that resulted in two Austin women being incarcerated on drug related charges.
On Friday, March 17, Deputy Charlie Morgan responded to a medical emergency on Terry Road in rural Scott County. His investigation led to the arrest of Kaylie Mullins, 21, of Austin for possession of a syringe and fleeing lawful detention.
On Saturday, April 18, Deputies Johnney Coomer and Skylar Thompson responded to a medical emergency in Austin. Their investigation led to the arrest of Lorria Winchester, 47, of Austin for possession of a narcotic drug, resisting law enforcement, and maintaining a common nuisance.
Both were lodged in Scott County Jail
