Quotes:
The greatest amount of sickness and death that I knew of in any locality in the Genesee country, was as late as 1821, in the settlements along on Black and Sandy Creek. The prevailing disease had all the distinctive character of the yellow fever, and in a dense population, would have been equally as fatal. It was principally owing to the erection of mill dams, and consequent flooding of timbered lands. When the mill dams were drawn off, the sickness subsided. In one of the earlier years, when Riga and Chili were one town, it was ascertained that 60 died in a population of less than 3,000.
