[K12OSN] Oops! Webmin mistake! Help!

I used a batch file to create users with webmin but forgot to specify 
a home directory... which ended up creating several users with all of 
them sharing /home as their home directory (instead of 
/home/username).  Then I used the delete user batch file to get rid of 
these new users, thinking that I'll fix the create user batch file and 
re-run it.  OOPs!  Webmin deleted /home!!!!!!

HELP!  Is there any way to recover these files?  Please?

I'm an ID10T.  Thanks for any help you can give.
