-------------------------
Miss Cora Midgett was a passenger on the gasoline launch "Edna May" travelling from Manteo to Nags Head when the launch caught fire and burned to water level. She was blown into the water by the explosion and drowned. The engineer and fireman were also reportedly fatally burned. A black man on a passing sloop rescued the others aboard the burning ship.
