Death certificate: Dallas Marion Law, Belleville, St. Clair County, Illinois, 1890-1920

Dallas Marion Law married Mae Julia Williams, daughter of Grace Logan Williams and Ed Williams. Grace Logan was the daughter of Zachariah T. “Jess” “Jesse” Logan and Mary Emaline Gibson Logan.

Dallas Law’s death illustrates how deadly what today we consider to be minor health issues were before the invention of penicillin and other “miracle drugs.” An otherwise healthy young man 30 years old, he died of septicemia (sepsis) from an infected furuncle (basically, a boil) on his upper lip.
