At the following website:
I found the following. Cerebro-Spinal Fever; Spotted Fever; Petechial Feyer
This disease has, of late years, attracted considerable attention from the circumstance of its having occurred as an epidemic in different parts of Europe and the United States. Its first recorded epidemic visitation in America was in 1806, when it occurred in Massachusetts. Hence it gradually spread through the New England States, Canada, New York, and Pennsylvania, from 1807 to 1812

Subject: [Q-R] 1812 deaths
I was wondering if there was some kind of disease or epidemic in Montreal in
I have parents dying within a couple of days of each other. I don't know
what happened to the children.
Antoine Delaunai/Delaunay died in Montreal on April 19, 1812
And his wife
Marie Ursule Conaissant died in Montreal on April 21, 1812
This information per PRDH
Their son Louis (my ancestor) would have been around 12 years old when his
parents died. He went to work for the Hudsons Bay Company and came west
first to B.C. and then to Washington Territory where he died in 1852.
Thanks for any help.
