Fireplaces

I searched the internet for fireplaces. Just to give you some ideas. How many ways can you do a fireplace? Well, look at these...

















This one is so unique but I've lived with woodstoves and fireplaces in the past and I know that keeping that glass chimney clean is impossible so I really don't think it's very practical.



















Having the wood boxes on either side of the fireplace seems convenient but keep in mind, wood comes from the outside and there are a lot of critters - snakes, spiders, roaches, etc. - that can come in with the wood, not counting the dirt and debris. So I never liked having wood inside the house.

Male, White, Married to Noonie Bridges (sic), DOB: 5/20/1859 in NC, 61 yrs, 3 mos, 24 days old
Occupation: Farmer
Father: John Bridges, born in NC
Mother: Synthia Bridges, Born in NC
Informant: B.H. Bridges of Forest City, NC
DOD: 9/14/1920 at 11:00pm
Cause of death: Cardio renal disease* and Dropsy** (duration 2 yrs and 6 mos)
Burial: Cool Springs on 9/15/1920

* Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is a condition characterized by kidney failure and heart failure. Type 2 CRS is characterized by chronic heart failure that leads to chronic kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years.
CKD is initially without specific symptoms and can only be detected as an increase in serum creatinine or protein in the urine. As the kidney function decreases:
Blood pressure is increased due to fluid overload and production of vasoactive hormones created by the kidney via the RAS (renin-angiotensin system), increasing one's risk of developing hypertension and/or suffering from congestive heart failure
Urea accumulates, leading to azotemia and ultimately uremia (symptoms ranging from lethargy to pericarditis and encephalopathy). Urea is excreted by sweating and crystallizes on skin ("uremic frost").
Potassium accumulates in the blood (known as hyperkalemia with a range of symptoms including malaise and potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias)
Erythropoietin synthesis is decreased (potentially leading to anemia, which causes fatigue)
Fluid volume overload - symptoms may range from mild edema to life-threatening pulmonary edema
Hyperphosphatemia - due to reduced phosphate excretion, associated with hypocalcemia (due to vitamin D3 deficiency). The major sign of hypocalcemia is tetany.
Later this progresses to tertiary hyperparathyroidism, with hypercalcaemia, renal osteodystrophy and vascular calcification that further impairs cardiac function.
Metabolic acidosis, due to accumulation of sulfates, phosphates, uric acid etc. This may cause altered enzyme activity by excess acid acting on enzymes and also increased excitability of cardiac and neuronal membranes by the promotion of hyperkalemia due to excess acid (acidemia)[2]
People with chronic kidney disease suffer from accelerated atherosclerosis and are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than the general population. Patients afflicted with chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease tend to have significantly worse prognoses than those suffering only from the latter. The most common causes of CKD are diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and glomerulonephritis.

** Dropsy, is an abnormal accumulation of fluid beneath the skin or in one or more cavities of the body. It can be caused by systemic diseases causing water retention, pregnancy in some women, either directly or as a result of heart failure, or local conditions such as varicose veins, thrombophlebitis, insect bites, or dermatitis. A rise in hydrostatic pressure occurs in cardiac failure. Severe heart failure can cause pulmonary edema, pleural effusions, ascites and peripheral edema. Pulmonary edema occurs when the pressure in blood vessels in the lung is raised because of obstruction to remove blood via the pulmonary veins. This is usually due to failure of the left ventricle of the heart. It can also occur in altitude sickness or on inhalation of toxic chemicals. Pulmonary edema produces shortness of breath. Pleural effusions may occur when fluid also accumulates in the pleural cavity. Pulmonary edema is fluid accumulation in the lungs. It leads to impaired gas exchange and may cause respiratory failure. It is due to either failure of the heart to remove fluid from the lung circulation ("cardiogenic pulmonary edema") or a direct injury to the lung parenchyma ("noncardiogenic pulmonary edema").

Amanuensis Monday - Christopher Shuford Humphries and Louise Anna Ruppe

Amenuensis Monday is a daily blogging prompt used by Geneabloggers.com to help them post content on their sites. An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin. Here is my contribution today:

Cause of death: Uremia due to chronic nephritis (duration 4 wks) due to cardio-renal*
Burial: 11/28/1954 in Smith's Grove, Forest City, NC
* Uremia is a term used to loosely describe the illness accompanying kidney failure (also called renal failure), in particular the nitrogenous waste products associated with the failure of this organ. Early symptoms include anorexia and lethargy, and late symptoms can include decreased mental acuity and coma. Other symptoms include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, cold, bone pain, itch, shortness of breath, and seizures.

* Chronic nephritis (chronic meaning ongoing) is a chronic inflammation of the tissues of the kidney.It is caused by a wide variety of etiological factors. The disease is frequently associated with a slow, progressive loss of kidney function. It is usually discovered accidentally, either by routine urinalysis (tests done to check kidney function) or during a routine physical checkup when anemia, hypertension, or laboratory findings (elevated serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen) are discovered. Its course is long and the prognosis (expectancy of cure) is poor. Protein and blood in urine, high blood pressure, gradual kidney failure, urea retention. Common causes include infection, or reaction to medication. Both acute and chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis can be caused by a bacterial infection in the kidneys, known as pyelonephritis. The most common cause is by an allergic reaction to a drug. The drugs that are known to cause this sort of reaction are antibiotics such as penicillin and cephalexin, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin. The time between exposure to the drug and the development of acute tubulointerstitial nephritis can be anywhere from 5 days to 5 months (fenoprofen induced).

* The cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) is a condition characterized by kidney failure and heart failure. The primarily failing organ may be either the heart or the kidney, and it is often this failing organ that precipitates failure of the other.

Amaneunsis Monday - Don Langdon John Humphries and Clarinda Melissa Jones

Amenuensis Monday is a daily blogging prompt used by Geneabloggers.com to help them post content on their sites. An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin. Here is my contribution today:

Amanuensis Monday - Birl Henderson Bridges and Macie Ora Humphries

Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging prompt used by Geneabloggers.com to help them post content on their sites. An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin. Here is my contribution today:

Cause of death: "General paralysis of insane"  *
Burial 9/11/1943 at Cool Springs, Forest City, NC

*   http://frontierpsychiatrist.co.uk/general-paralysis-of-the-insane-and-psychiatrys-only-nobel-prize/
     General paralysis of the insane, a syndrome of mental disorder and weakness occurring in tertiary syphilis, is also known as dementia paralytica, Bayle disease, parenchymal syphilis and symptomatic neurosyphilis.  It is a rare disease in western general adult psychiatry these days but, at the height of its powers, it is thought that it accounted for up to 20% of patients in asylums.
     In brief: syphilis is a chronic sexually transmitted disease, caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum, resulting in the formation of lesions throughout the body.  As well as being sexually transmitted the infection can also be transmitted from mother to the developing fetus (congenital syphilis).
     The primary symptom is a hard ulcer (chancre) at the site of infection (i.e the penis or vagina) and this forms 2-4 weeks following exposure.  Secondary symptoms develop about two months after this infection and include fever, malaise general enlargement of lymph nodes and a faint red rash on the chest.  Then, after a period of time somewhere between some months to many years the disease enters its tertiary phase with widespread formation of tumour like masses (gummas).  These can cause serious damage to the heart or blood vessels (cardiovascular syphilis) or to the brain (neurosyphilis) resulting in tabes dorsalis, blindness and general paralysis of the insane.
     The onset of GPI is usually gradual with depression as the dominant symptom.  There is then a slowly progressive memory and intellectual impairment.  Frontal lobes are particularly involved, resulting in characteristic personality change with disinhibition, uncontrolled excitement and over activity which may be mistaken for hypomania.  Grandiose delusions are present in 10%.  Physically there is slurred speech, a tremor of the lips and tongue, and Argyll Robinson pupil** in 50%.  As the condition progresses there is increased leg weakness leading to spastic paralysis. Patients become completely incapacitated, bedridden, and die, the process taking about three to five years on average.
The first clearly identified examples of paresis among the insane were described in Paris after the Napoleonic wars and general paresis of the insane was first described as a distinct disease in 1822 by Antoine Laurent Jesse Bayle.  Originally, the cause was (charitably) believed to be an inherent weakness of character or constitution.  While Esmarch and Jessen had asserted as early as 1857 that syphilis caused general paresis, progress toward the general acceptance by the medical community of this idea was only accomplished later by Alfred Fournier. In 1913 all doubt about the syphilitic nature of paresis was finally eliminated when Noguchi and Moore demonstrated the syphillitic spirochaetes in the brains of paretics.
     In 1927 Julius Wagner-Jauregg was given the first and only Nobel Prize awarded to a psychiatrist.  This was for work done in 1917 by which time he had been selflessly studying the the relationship between fever and psychosis 30 years.  Wagner-Jauregg had exposed three neurosyphilitic patients to malaria drawn from the blood of a wounded soldier.  The resulting high fever killed the syphilis spirochetes, leading to their recovery (the fate of the soldier is not recorded).  Given that there were few cures for anything in 1917, Wagner-Jauregg’s achievement was a milestone in psychiatric and medical science.  There was now a reliable, albeit risky, cure for neurosyphilis.
     After WWII the use of penicillin to treat syphilis has made general paresis a rarity and now even patients manifesting early symptoms of actual general paresis are capable of full recovery with a course of penicillin. The disorder is now virtually unknown outside  third world countries, although it has been reported in western HIV sufferers.

Cause of death: Myocardial Infarction (duration 17 days) due to coronary thrombosis (duration 17 days) due to coronary arteriosclerosis (duration unk) *
Burial: 7/22/1960 at Cool Springs Cemetery, Forest City, Rutherford County, NC

*    A myocardial infarction is the interruption of blood supply to a part of the heart, causing heart cells to die. This is most commonly due to occlusion (blockage) of a coronary artery following the rupture of a vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque, which is an unstable collection of lipids (fatty acids) and white blood cells (especially macrophages) in the wall of an artery. The resulting ischemia (restriction in blood supply) and oxygen shortage, if left untreated for a sufficient period of time, can cause damage or death (infarction) of heart muscle tissue (myocardium).
     Classical symptoms of acute myocardial infarction include sudden chest pain (typically radiating to the left arm or left side of the neck), shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, palpitations, sweating, and anxiety (often described as a sense of impending doom). Women may experience fewer typical symptoms than men, most commonly shortness of breath, weakness, a feeling of indigestion, and fatigue. Approximately one quarter of all myocardial infarctions are "silent", without chest pain or other symptoms.
