Bernie,

I've slept since finding the information about the fever camps and I can't
find in my data what kind. It was black or yellow fever. There were at least
2 camps mentioned in the late 1870s. One seem to be in the southern part of
Izard County. The people in Independence County were sent there. There was
one around Memphis, TN.
