LABETT family, of which five generations lived on the island before the storm. The family was nearly wiped out. One young man connected to the family was down town, and escaped. When the parties of searchers were organized and proceeded to various parts of the city, one of them came upon this young Labett near the ruins of his home, all alone. He had made his way there and had found the bodies of father and mother and other relatives. He had carried the dead to a drift of sand, and there without a tool, with his bare hands and a piece of board, he was trying to scrape out gravel to bury the bodies.
