Announced January 15, 1944, and reported by newspapers, the leading cause of death in Carteret County1 in 1943 was plane crashes (!). They totalled 23, followed by second and third leading causes: cerebral hemmorhage and myocarditis. No numbers for those. The county had 580 births that year, and 186 deaths.
