A few survivors were taken to
the Sherman House hotel on Clark and Randolph, a
block west of the Iroquois Theater.
According to the newspaper,
thirteen injured audience members were cared for
there, some prior to transport to the hospital.
Two of the seriously injured parties represented,
Henry and Emma Van Ingen and Emily Henning, were
parents of multiple children lost at the Iroquois.
The Van Ingen's, who survived their injuries, lost
five grown children.
Emily Henning lost her four
boys, age four to twelve and died in the hospital
herself five weeks later. Her husband, James
Henning, had to care for his wife and arrange
funerals and burials in a distant city. To
multiply the horror, one of his children, Jimmy
misidentified and the body had to be switched with
that of the
Palmer family's son, Howard.
Of others mentioned in the
news story, Edith Pridemore, Bessie and Nina Chapman
and Josephine Pilat all died.
Eddie Foy among the
guests, the Sherman House was also a congregating
point for the media. Foy conducted several
interviews while there, in so doing introducing
minor discrepancies in his description of his
experience at the Iroquois. (Minor but
sufficient to add more inconsistency for the coroner
to pick through.)
