Among the noted epidemics of influenza are those of 1762, 1782, 1803, 1833, 1837, and 1847.

In the 17th century the Italians ascribed epidemics of like nature to the "influence" of the stars; hence the name "influenza"

They then went to spelling school as innocently as if nothing had taken place, but the boys were not to be bluffed off in this way. Their fun was to come further on. So, on Saturday night, a crowd of them gathered before the house of the bride's mother, with drums, pans, bells, kettles, guns, and everything else that would make a noise, and for about an hour, they filled the valley with "horrid nice" music, nor did they let up when the bride and groom made an appearance, and the cigars and candles were forthcoming. Later on, the Bendertown Band arrived and completed the serenade.
