Newspaper accounts printed a week or so after the storm all report 32 fatalities but none of them list exactly the same names.  We were able to eliminate a few obvious errors and wound up with the correct number by consulting obituaries and cemetery records. There may still be some errors in given names, but we believe the list is essentially correct and hope we’ve not missed anyone who should be included in this memorial.
