Note: Sinipee was a small village in a valley on the Mississippi River about three miles north of the hamlet of Dubuque. In 1839, early thaws and heavy rains flooded the valley. Hot weather, combined with the stagnant pools of water left from the flooding caused a malaria epidemic which wiped out the entire town except for the Vaughn family and a few people who abandoned the village.
