20 dead, many hurt, in Overton Tornado
The little mountain settlement of Bethsaida bore the brunt of a
tornado early Wednesday morning, leaving a score dead and many more
injured. The Dead: Mr. and Mrs. Boss Lacey, Mrs. Mary Reeser, Ed
Hopkins and daughter, Barbara Hopkins, Eunice Cole, wife, and seven
children, Millard Allred, Hughey Beatty, Ray Reagan, Hershell Phillips,
Mrs. Ambrose King, and daughter, Epsie King. While natives of this
village, two miles East of Monroe, search the wooded hills for other
bodies, residents predicts more deaths will be registered by the
week-end. The tornado exceeds in death and destruction the one in
Nashville several weeks ago, and is perhaps the worst the state
has ever had.
