Eight Lives Lost, Three Bodies Still Missing. Property Loss is Enormous
The Lyman reservoir Dam, located 12 miles above St Johns on the Little Colorado, broke Tuesday night just before midnight, letting loose an immense volume of water which swept everything before it for several miles down the river.
AT EL TULE, a small settlement close under the dam, eight persons were drowned, being unable to escape from the adobe house they occupied. The dead are the three children of Mr and Mrs Ellis Palmer; Gerald, Ross and Louise, Mrs Jose Saavedra Jr and her infant child, Mrs Violet Ray, her son Dewey, aged 17, and her daughter Hazel, aged 9. Mrs Ray and children came a week or so ago with a party of homeseekers from Montezuma, Colo. The men of the party had accepted work at the dam temporarily and all were living there. A family by the name of Lyons occupied the same house with the Rays and Palmers, but they all managed to escape. Mrs Ray and her son had reached a place of safety, but went back for her daughter Hazel and the Palmer children, when the flood overwhelmed them. Mrs Ray rescued two of her children who are left orphans. They are Ethel, aged 7 and Lillie aged 4. Late tonight (Thursday) the bodies of five of those drowned have been recovered, those yet missing being the baby of Mrs Saavedra, the little Palmer Girl and the little Ray girl. Practically all the male population of St Johns will turn out in the morning and continue the search until these bodies are recovered.


TRAGIC DEATH OF MRS RAY AND TWO CHILDREN

The startling intelligence of the death by drowning of Mrs Reese Ray and son, Dewey, and little daughter Hazel, was received over the wire by relatives here last evening. Details of the tragic event are very meager. It appears however, that the party consisting of the Ray family and some two or three other families from Montezuma valley, were encamped on a creek near St. Johns, Arizona. A government dam in the stream above them broke and the torrent of water came down catching Mrs. Ray and Dewey and Hazel in the flood and swept them away to their death. It appears that Dewey might have been having an attack of heart trouble and these three were a little nearer the stream than the others, perhaps right on the brink, when the wall of water came down.
After the first shock of the news was over last evening, Miss Olive Ray, a daughter and Elliott Willden, a brother to Mrs. Ray, left for the scenes of the tragedy. They planned to leave Cortez this morning by auto and will make the trip through overland with greatest possible dispatch. We understand that the bodies will be brought back to mancos for burial. It is certainly a sudden and sad bereavement to the many friends of the family here.
(Dewey and mother Violet were buried in St John's Cemetery. Hazel's body was never found.)

RE: Billie K Eaton
Hi, I am so happy you found your grandmother. I got started with Find A Grave the same way. I found my GGgrandparents on a family plot. They were not very far from where I grew up. I just had no idea the family plot was there.
Good luck with your searching.
