The farmhouse of Phillip Wolfe, three miles east was completely demolished. The family was caught in the ruins, but afterwards rescured[sic] with slight injuries Considerable stock was killed by falling barns but no estimate can be made as the distance parts of the county have not been heard from. The direction of the storm was from the northwest. Near Joysville twelve barns were destroyed, four horses killed and three persons badly hurt. At Mechanicsburg, O. many trees were blown down and several buildings unroofed and upturned. The cyclone here came from the northwest. From Urbana, Ohio, it is reported that the storm did great damage in the vicinity of Mutual and Bowlersville, the track being one third of a mile wide. The destruction of timber is very heavy.
