According to a newspaper article, part of the 1931 Hendricks County marriage license of Homer Howard and Dorothy Elizabeth Roberts was recovered in Westfield, Hamilton County, Indiana in 1950. The license had been lost in March 1948 as part of the damage from the "Good Friday" tornado that hit Danville and Coatesville. The article states that the Howards' 14-year-old son, Donald Howard, was among those who had been killed by the tornado.
