    Notes 
    • Was listed as 65 in 1880 census with wife  Lucinda age 50, sons Edward A,age 18 and James age 13, and daughter Jane age 16. - from notes acquired w/Russell V. Skelton's papers.
    • (Medical):REED CITY WEEKLY CLARION:  June 3, 1881
      In 1880 there were 33 births in this township and 58 deaths.  Of this number 33 were caused by diphtheria.

      A grave cannot be found for Addison although his death certificate proves he died in Osceola Co.  The certificate also states that he died from fever and there is every reason to believe he was one of the statistics alluded to in the above newspaper article.  If that is so than he would have been buried very quickly due to the contagiousness of his sickness and the epidemic that was sweeping through the township.

      REED CITY WEEKLY CLARION:  June 10, 1881
      DIPHTHERIA and SCARLET FEVER
      From a circular issued by Dr. James Crane, of the Brooklyn Health Department, we make the following extract:
      "Diphtheria and scarlet fever are highly contagious diseases, attacking persons of all ages.  They may be contracted from persons that are already  affected, from the clothes they have worn and from  everything
      that has been in the room with them.  Even the walls of a room may infect persons coming into it after the patient has recovered, unless the poison is destroyed.  In order to prevent their spread the family or a house where they exist, and to promote the recovery of the persons attacked, the following simple measures should be conscientiously and rigidly carried out, thereby preventing much suffering and saving human life.  An upper, sunny room, provided if possible with an open fireplace and with no children on the same floor, should be arranged for the patient by removing everything from it  that can possibly be spared, such as books, clothing and window curtains, remembering that when the patient has entered the room nothing can safely be removed until disinfected or fumigated.  One or two adults should take the entire charge of the patient, under no circumstances coming in contact with other persons, more especially children.  Open windows and open fireplaces with fire in them day and night , avoiding draughts and chilly air, protects the sick and those who nurse them.  Nothing should be removed from the room when the patient has once entered it until it has been thoroughly disinfected or fumigated."
