    Notes 
    • Buried in Snow Hill: Annie L. Booth, 1872 - 1885
      Note from Doris Jean: When I was at the Snow Hill Cemetery in June, 1973 I recorded information from the only 3 tombstones there at that time. One was for Annie L. Booth, B. 1-1-1872 D. 7-20-1885 and engraved "Our darling hath gone before, To greet us on the blissful shore". The other two stones were for her parents, Binns Beverly Booth and Eliza Bingham Baird Booth.

      Lived with Sally Baird (called Aunt Sally by Mary V. Howard), in Waverly.
      Lived near the Waverly Christian Church.
    • (Medical):Diphtheria per the resolution by Carsley Church.
      In the 1920s there were an estimated 100,000 to 200,000 cases of diphtheria per year in the United States, causing 13,000 to 15,000 deaths per year.[3] Children represented a large majority of these cases and fatalities. One of the first effective treatments for diphtheria was discovered in the 1880s by U.S. physician Joseph O'Dwyer (1841-1898). O'Dwyer developed tubes that were inserted into the throat, and prevented victims from suffocating due to the membrane sheath that grows over and obstructs airways. In the 1890s, the German physician Emil von Behring developed an antitoxin that did not kill the bacterium, but neutralized the toxic poisons that the bacterium releases into the body.
      Unfortunately the treatment to save a life never made it to Surry County doctors in time to save 13 yoa Annie Laurie. 5 years after her death an antitoxin was developed, and later refined and later given to all school children throughout the United States ... Gene Harris
