Cause of Death


New member
My Austin family are one of my solidest brick walls. Yesterday I was sent a death certificate for the person I think was my Gt Gt Grandmother, Hannah Austin. The cause of death was listed in beautiful legible handwriting as:

Hepotic Dropsy and Coma

Has anyone come across this cause of death before as I can't find an exact term in any of the old illnesses websites.

kind regards,
