1925 Tornado Hamilton County Fatalities

When the 1925 Tornado passed through Hamilton County, Illinois on March 18, 1925, 41 people lost their lives. Many more were injured. Fatalities by township were Flannigan - 11, Twigg - 8, Mayberry - 1, Crook - 18, and Unknown - 3. My grandfather's family lived 1.5 miles south of Crook Township where the largest number of people died. His father and neighbors searched for the injured in their community.
