In 1900 my Great-grandaunt Bertha Challis Rogers was living with her 15-year-old daughter, Blanche Donald, at 1922 Avenue N. Her husband was on a business trip. Also staying with her was her niece, Alice Rogers, and the niece's fiance, Ashby L. Cook. Bertha and Alice survived. Asby drowned trying to save Blanche who also drowned. Over 6,000 people died in the largest city (38,000) in Texas at that time. This remains the deadliest natural disaster in United States history.
