SAILORS - 1918 Flu Epidemic

The Wilmington Country Club served as a hospital during the 1918 influenze epidemic.

A group of merchant seamen, probably from the Port of Wilmington, died of influenza in the emergency hospital at the Country Club. They are only identified as 'Hindoo' sailors with phonetic spellings of their names; and are buried at Mount Olive.

 

These sailors are possibly the residents of Mount Olive who are buried farthest from their homes.
