A type of consumption, (TB)

Thanks Sinann.
Now that you say it I can see consumption and 4 years, she had her 3rd and last child in April 1879 must have been sick from shortly afterwards , she was only 29 when she died. RIP Margaret.

The word before consumption looks like  Phlursey to me, which sounds like pleurisy.

That's the word, I was racking my brain for that but I just couldn't draw it out.
