    From the Memoirs of Barbara (Hunter) Anderson:

    Mr. Hunter took ill with pleurisy during the winter of 1890 and 1891 after which an accident, in his weakness, caused an illness which resulted in his death on September 12, 1894.

    No doctor and no hospital near, and no money to go where help could be obtained, was the sad experience of pioneers of the early days.
