I would also be interested in photo's. We lived there in '51 and our house was completely destroyed by the tornado. My mother had a set of silverware that was scattered all over the surrounding country side. She and Daddy put ad's in the paper and EVERY piece of silverware was finaly recovered. Pieces were sent from miles away.

I was only 5 years old but remember my family (Dad, Mom, Brother and me) sitting at the table when Mother said we should take a drive and look at the clouds. My older brother wanted to stay there and finish his piece of pie but Mother wouldn't let him. As we were backing out of the driveway the twister touched down and headed straight for us. Daddy drove away on the road and we could see it swirling and picking up debris as it chased us. Years later, Daddy told us he had the car floor boarded and we were only going about 30 MPH.

When we came back after it passed we found our house gone, but the one next door to us didn't even have a broken window.
