In some cases several members of families were killed. Mrs. C. O. Newton, living in the Hagin district of Bulloch County, was awakened by rain beating in her face. Her home had been blown down while she slept and scattered about her were the bodies of her four children, Emma, 28; Lillie May, 25; Edward, 16 and Grady, 18. Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Coleman and their three children were killed in the destruction of their farm home in Chandler County. Rain and hail accompanied the tornadoes in most instances, beating down crops, which were wholly ruined in many places...
