Sylvia Durfee Davol – The Hurricane (1938)

My mother grew up in Fall River, Massachusetts.  When she was young her family had a summer house on the beach at Westport, Mass.  When she was twenty-two the 1938 hurricane washed away the Davol family house along with other relatives’ houses.  Mom entrusted me with this account by my grandmother Davol with photographs by my Uncle Red.
