This site is being relocated, and the original you have presently reached will be maintained rather infrequently. Before long, when the new site seems pretty stable and is being found by Google, I shall put automatic redirects on each of the pages of this old site. In the meantime, you could click this link to go to the new one: grahamhague.com. Sorry about this!
A number of Samoan Natives and other Apia residents were present at the time of the storm. I have not been able to find out much about them, but there are some data available on the web or in contemporary publications, and in Kimberly's "Special Report" dated April 16th, 1889.
This page of my site is intended to make sure that their names are not forgotten. I am sure that there were many more residents who helped during the storm, and whose names were never recorded or have since been lost. If there are any visitors to the site who have information about someone who was there, either listed on this page or not, please let me know the details, and I'll include them here.
The Samoan names are spelt as per the various sources, but I am afraid that some may have been incorrectly recorded.
The names underlined are links to images of the individual, where I have found them. The other links are web-sites which carry some data about the particular man. It may be very brief, and may be deeply hidden so you might need to use your browser's "search" or "find" facility with his name.
