Zephyr, TX Tornado, May 1909

Does anyone have photos of the tornado damage done in Zephyr?

Clarence was a merchant there in Zephyr.

I am working on a story of a family who moved from Taylor Co GA to Texas and died there in 1909 in the Zephyr cyclone.

Clarence M. Carter married Emma Glover November 20, 1898 in Taylor Co., Ga. Emma was a daughter of Francis E. Glover and Pauline Christopher.

Children of Clarence and Emma were:
(1) Frank Glover Carter born 1 Oct 1899 in Reynolds, Ga. and died 30 May 1909 in Zephyr, Brown Co., Tx
(2) Robert Walton Carter born 17 Oct 1902 in Reynolds, Ga. and died 30 May 1909 in Zephyr, Brown Co., TX
(3) Miriam Carter born 25 Dec 1905 in Reynolds, Ga. she survived the cyclone and died in Taylor County, Ga. 13 Feb 1992
(4) Arch Carter born 14 Nov 1908 in Zephyr and died 30 May 1909 in Zephyr, Brown Co., Tx


I have been trying to locate photographs of the damage in the town. Clarence was a merchant.

The two grand fathers went to Texas and buried the dead. I can find no reference to Arch Carter and Miriam Carter in the newspaper accounts.
