  1. Additional victims of storm include the three victims from the freighter William Nottingham, who volunteered to leave the ship on a lifeboat in search of assistance. While the boat was being lowered into the water, a breaking wave smashed it into the side of the ship. The men disappeared into the near-freezing waters below. At least four persons not on ships also perished because of the 1913 storm: two persons in Cleveland; and a missing duck hunter (see List of Victims of 1913 storm) and a train conductor (see Thomas Fletcher find a grave memorial).
