Typhoid fever is a bacterial disease spread through contaminated food and water or close contact.
The disease has received various names, such as gastric fever, enteric fever, abdominal typhus, infantile remittant fever, slow fever, nervous fever, and pythogenic fever. The name typhoid means "resembling typhus" and comes from the neuropsychiatric symptoms common to typhoid and typhus. Despite this similarity of their names, typhoid fever and typhus are distinct diseases and are caused by different species of bacteria.
The occurrence of this disease fell sharply in the developed world with the rise of 20th-century sanitation techniques and antibiotics. In 2013 it resulted in about 161,000 deaths – down from 181,000 in 1990.
I have located the burial ground of all three who are buried in the Western Cemetery, Perth Road, Dundee.
They are buried in semi private ground (paupers grave) however they are all buried in the same grave. Section I Lair 265. As this is an unpurchased lair it will be unmarked.
Hope this helps.
