Family died in tornado outbreak of February 19th 1884 "The Enigma Outbreak" in Jones County GA. Excerpt from obituary in a local paper is as follows:

February 26, 1884 Union and Recorder ~excerpt~From Mr. W. A. Davidson, of Jones county, who came in for five coffins for one family, we learn something of the destruction caused by the cyclone in Jones. At Blountsville, six miles from Haddock's Station, the storm came up about 4:30 o'clock. In an instant houses were blown down, fragments being carried great distances.

 Mr. W. A. Miller, who lives near Blountsville, was at his brother-in-law's, about a mile away, when the storm came up. On going home he found the house gone and on the ground lying at considerable distance from each other, the dead bodies of his wife and three children. One child was blown away and the body had not been found up the the time Mr. Davidson left. Six negroes were also killed, their bodies being literally torn to pieces. The church was also blown away......
