From the Tyrone Daily Herald dated January 1, 1920: NECROLOGY OF TYRONE BOROUGH Deaths in Year Number One Hundred and Fifteen MORTALITY RATE NORMAL Largest Number of Deaths in Any One Year, Except 1918. No Sweeping Epidemic. Pneumonia Demanded Heaviest Toll. Rate Here is 12 to 1,000. Ages of Those Who Passed Away and Causes of Their Demise. Record of Thirty Years. In accordance with the annual custom of the Herald on New Year's day for the past thirty years, the mortality list is published today, naming all Tyrone persons who died during the year 1919, with the date of the death oĢ each, the cause ot death and the age of the deceased. This list includes Tyrone persons, whether they died in the borough or out of the town. Some of the deaths, of course, occurred at hospitals elsewhere, or were due to accident beyond the borough limits, or came while sojourns were being made. The list does not include persons from other places who died in Tyrone while visiting here, there being a few of such instances during the year. Nor does it include stillbirths of which there were twelve in Tyrone during the past year. There were 115 deaths of Tyrone people during the year 1919. This is the largest number recorded for any one year in the history of the borough, with the single exception of the year immediately preceding, 1918, when the aggregate reached the large number of 162. The unusual mortality of 1918 was principally due to the dire epidemic of influenza which swept over the country and took its toll here as everywhere in human lives. In 1919, as in most recent years, pneumonia was the most deadly foe of those who battled for life, and fifteen deaths are ascribed to its ravage. The same number occurred from complications of diseases. Many persons were called suddenly, eight from apoplexy, and others from heart disease and paralysis, besides five who met with violent deaths. As to contagion, the mortality was not large, six deaths being ascribed to diphtheria. Only two deaths are recorded as due to tuberculosis which is slowly, being eradicated by modern precaution. During the same period there were twenty-one deaths in Snyder township and fourteen in Tyrone township. Of the 115 Tyrone persons who died, twenty-three were children under one year of age. About one-third of the entire number, thirty-eight were persons between the ages of sixty and eighty.
