Pneumonia is an inflammatory illness of the lungs. In this case it was one lung (lobar). Typical symptoms associated with pneumonia include cough, chest pain, fever, and difficulty in breathing. Apparently, baby Joseph suffered from the illness for a relatively short time (acute means less than 3 weeks) before he died at home. He is buried at Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn.
