J. Coleman Drayton's family contracted typhoid spread by their hired cook, "Typhoid Mary" Malon in the summer 1902.  Would any genealogists or descendants know where to locate Drayton private papers which might chronicle the names of other hired household help, addresses of summer rentals and/or the family experience of the illness in the summer of 1902 or subsequently?  Many thanks!

Michelle L.,

I found these two newspaper articles stating where Drayton was renting homes during 1902.  I hope they help. I will see what other information I might find.

The summer of 1902, James and his daughter Caroline rented a summer cottage in Isleborough, Maine.

That winter, they rented the home of General di Cesnola, on East 57th Street.
