1918-Flu Staten Island Marguerite Rivas sipoet Jim,
I wonder how many families were like yours -- one spouse dies in the Influenza epidemic, remarries. I would imagine quite a few, especially as it hit young men and women. In my family, when a man was left a widower with small children, he either remarried right away or the children were reared by a female relative. It's strange how things work out -- cause and effect powers the universe.
