Default question about old OP varieties

I'm not sure if this is the right category for this question. Seems like it could also do in the Diseases section. Back in the days before varieties included things like VFF or VFN in their names, I see some descriptions in old seed catalogs that simply say "wilt resistant." Is there any way to know which wilt they're describing? Fursarium, maybe? I'm talking about tomatoes like Crimson Cushion and some of the old Livingston varieties. I've looked around for an answer but I just get a lot of info on what V and F and N stand for and I already know all that. I just want to know what was meant by "wilt" in the late 1800's/early 1900's. Thanks in advance.
