May 29, 1909 Zephyr Cyclone
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Eugene Cornelius
Description: Just before midnight on May 29, 1909, a tornado destroyed my hometown of Zephyr, Texas. At the time, Zephyr was a thriving community of about 500 people. Not a church, school or business was left standing. The number who died was at least 37 persons who either died outright or later from injuries. Within a year, the community was mostly rebuilt and going on with life. Growing up in Zephyr, I recall seeing the remains of the city bank wall still standing. This virtual cemetery is to remember and honor those who died so tragically.
