Harrison Golladay

African American

Harrison is mentioned in a letter to George S. Golladay by C. H. Guy:

Grenada, 20 Jul 1858

Harrison had a severe attack of the flux.(1) Mr. Daugherty went in to get Dr. Hughes but could not get him. He then got Dr. Gillespie.(2) He went to see him one time and relieved him at once. I thought he was very dangerous, so did the Dr. But he is well now.

(1) Flux was a term used in the 1800's to describe illness with an excessive flow or discharge of fluid such as dysentery.

(2) Dr. Gillespie was a victim of the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1878.
