KILLED IN STORM NEAR LOVELADY. Friday afternoon about 5 o'clock, during a thunderstorm, the house of T. J. Jackson, living four miles north of Lovelady, was blown down, instantly killing Mrs. Jackson and an infant two months old of W. D. Jackson (she was holding the infant, per Alice), who was on a visit to his brother from Glendale, and seriously wounding the mother of the two Jackson men; also Ethel Killingsworth, step-daughter of T. J. Jackson, age 14 had leg broken; Claudia Jackson, bronken arm; Freddy Goyens, 14 years old, head fractured, and four others slightly wounded.

The house was a small frame structure, built about four yeara ago, and had not even shaken from the wind when it fell without a moment's warning, pinning alll beneath the debris. A small, seven year old boy crawled out from the rubbish and went for help. Kind neighbors (a black family per Alice) came and took charge of the dead and wounded and a physician was summoned at once. Mrs. Jackson was buried in the Center Hill cemetery, while the infant of W. D. Jackson was taken to Glen

To date have not located burial for her mother or first husband.

You are not forgotten, loved one, nor will you ever be; as long as life and memory last, we will remember thee. We miss you now, our hearts are sore. As time goes by, we'll miss you more, no one can fill your vacant place.
