Joyner, Evelyn:

The info for Evelyn Joyner comes from her relatives, one of whom I met through my Historical Ziegfeld site: Evelyn Joyner, b. 1904, Bradenton, Manatee Co, FL; d. circa 1924, New York City, NY. Evelyn was in the Ziegfeld Follies (about 1922). The story is she always said she would not live to see 21. While she was in NYC, a hurricane happened and while she was sleeping on the couch near an open window she was drenched. Probably died of pneumonia about age 20. Need research on storm date, NYC, from 1918-1926.

I did a bit of hunting in the NY Times Archives and came up with this: August 31, 1924, Sunday: WEST INDIAN HURRICANE SEASON OPENS IN NEW YORK; Tropical Storm That Shook Its Tail Here and Battered Westbound Liners Spent Its Power at Sea - Feared in the Caribbean - The West Indian hurricane season has begun. Oddly enough, the first tropical disturbance," as the weather man calls it, of 1924 shook its tail over New York last Monday, spilled three inches or more of rain upon the city and then laid its course eastward along the steamship lanes, battering the liners coming west.

Perhaps that is the storm that caused Evelyn's pneumonia. Thanks so much for the lovely image of Evelyn, Joy!
