Tornado of 1925

Photos Donated by Shauna Williams

Thelma "Stafford" Burrows (1913-2004)

Shauna Williams, one of our own Genealogy Trails hosts, has donated these photos which belonged to her great-grandmother Helen Sharp.  These pictures show some of the destruction left behind from the Tornado of 1925.  Above is Helen's niece, Thelma "Stafford" Burrows, sitting on a branch or board that was driven thru the tree from the force of the tornado.  Below there are several pages which show other areas and people.  If you can identify any person or building, please email Leslie.

Howard Sharp 1900-1980, husband of Helen.
