What did they call pneumonia in the late 18th century in KY and Ohio? What were the treatments for it?
Thanks.

Try this site. It's a transcription of a medical text from that time period.

"I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear." -- Joan Didion (1934 - )
