Leonard Thomas Williams, Camp Meade, c. 1917-18. He was caught up in the swine flu pandemic, and did not get sent overseas. After he returned home, he never fully recovered his health, and he died in 1935, at the age of 41. The cause of death was listed as “t.b. of the bowels” on his death certificate. And it was this that most folks believed he picked up at Camp Meade; not just the swine flu.
From all accounts, he was a good man and well thought of in his community. My mother was only 13 when he died, and she felt this loss deeply the rest of her life.
