Can you identify the people in these photos from the August 23, 1933 hurricane? I think they are from Poquoson.

The first picture is my grandparents, John Riley and Maggie Lena Garrett Firth with some of their 11 children. I would love to have this picture (a copy? please) and I will get the names of the children as I am not sure which they are!
