After this census entry, Ned and Della lost their daughter, Docia, to bald hives. This was referred to by my husband's grandmother as 'bowl hives' but, she didn't know how it was spelled and so could have been 'bald hives'. She told me some of the ways to cure it, but, many children used to die of the illness. Since it has 'hives' in the name and the doctor lists throat and lung trouble - I'm assuming this is a result of anaphalaxic shock from an allergic reaction. You didn't think that peanuts only started killing people in this century - did you? Docia's death certificate is as follows:
