Note: BIOGRAPHY: Listed in 1916 Henry County Farmer's directory as a laborer at R7 Napoleon. In 1917 he has his brother, Dolar, working for him as a laborer. His draft registration in 1917 lists him as tall with brown hair and eyes. 1924: Land contract for purchase of land 40 feet of the west side of lot number 188 in William Sheffields 3rd addition to Napoleon by Urban and Clara Flory from Harry M. and Dora Long for $2,250 dated February 23, 1924. Death certificate has him as a mechanic working at Napoleon Products Company. DEATH: Bernard I. Flory said his father died of a ruptured gallbladder. Death certificate has tubluemya(?) with bronchitis as a contributory cause. Symptoms prior to death appeared while at work.
Note: The writer of the death certificate may have intended to state that the cause of death was tularemia (sometimes known as rabbit fever or deer fly fever). It is a rare but highly contagious bacterial infection resulting from an insect bite or direct exposure to an infected animal. Since the advent of antibiotics, it is fatal in at most one percent of the cases. In earlier times though, it was fatal in 50-70% of the cases. As the disease progresses, it attacks internal organs. The mention that the illness was complicated by bronchitis is also highly suggestive that the bacteria had been inhaled and attacked the lungs. It may have been mis-diagnosed initially as bronchitis, and therefore might not have been taken as seriously as it should have been.
