Terrific Wind Storm

On Friday morning Grantsville and vicinity was visited by a raging wind storm that did great damage and resulted in loss of at least one life.

A young boy by the name of Curtis, residing on one branch of Steer Creek, was on his way to the store at Perkins, when the storm struck in full blast and blew down a large tree striking and nearly instantly killing the unfortunate boy.

The dwelling house of Doud Stump, on Philipps Run, was partially unroofed by the wind, as was the school house at this place.  The wind also picked up Colonel R.P. Mollohan's front porch and moved it around where the back porch of a house is usually situated.
