I am searching for anyone who may be related to my husband's family of Caughman's of Lexington, SC who may know if anyone had Alzheimer's or some form of dementia in their families. I have been told by one of his siblings that they seemed to remember a grt. Aunt having the disease as well, but when I checked for her death record on line there wasn't one listed for her, only an Index which gave no cause of death. She died in 1968. Most of the available on-line death records of his family, they all seemed to have died from heart related illnesses. I have been told that Alzheimer's may be genetic so that is the main reason for my query. Any help at all would be so very appreciated.
Thank you.
