I told you that when I am working on Legacy’s Research Guidance I have to access records in every database I add to see exactly what information they contain. I was working on Nova Scotia Deaths, 1864-1877 and I randomly clicked on a page for Pictou County when I found three children (siblings) that had all died of Scarlet Fever. John McIntosh age 1 year and 3 months died on 10 February 1876, Anne McIntosh age 5 years died on the 13th of February, and Daniel McIntosh age 7 died on March 2nd. Their parents were Duncan and Bella McIntosh. You can see the actual page HERE. I can’t imagine losing one child let alone three children in a span of less than three weeks.
