"Too Soon to Die" by Tom Godwin.

It's been a long time, but I remember a heavy gravity and horrible fevers killing many people, but fewer died each generation, and each generation was stronger and more adapted to the planet.

This story sure comes up a lot at this site. "Too Soon to Die" was the title of the magazine story. It was expanded into a novel which was published under two different titles, "The Survivors" and "Space Prison".
