Also mentioned in our discussions was a resource for timelines of diseases, a book called History for Genealogists Using Chronological Time Lines to Find and Understand Your Ancestors by Judy Jacobson. Here is a link to the book on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/History-Genealogists-Chronological-Understand-Ancestors/dp/0806354399/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321750469&sr=8-1
I also found a website with a listing of epidemics at wikipedia - epidemics and also at Flue traker - epidemic time line.
