flu epidemic in 1892?

My grandmother, Josephine Amelia Johnson, 1885-1978, told us that her parents died in a flu epidemic in 1892 or 1893. She said they lived in Rothsay although her birth form says she was born in Akron. I can find nothing on her parents, Amund Johnson (b.Sweden) or Gulbior Jacobson (b.Norway). Can anyone confirm that there was a flu epidemic at that time? Perhaps there is someway to search those records. Thank you!
