TRAGIC DEATH OF GEORGE ELMORE - KILLED IN WRECK ON A. B. &
A. RAILROAD SUNDAY MORNING.
George Elmore is no longer here upon this earth of sin and sorrow,
His kind face will never be seen in Oglethorpe. It was not seen
around the dear old family table last Sunday where a home like
dinner had been prepared by the tender loving hands of mother
and sisters. Only a vivid picture of this noble, loving boy
remains to comfort the sad hearts of those who were patiently
awaiting his arrival Sunday at noon. The story of his untimely
death is too horrible to relate. It would probably only open
the fresh wounds which his sudden passing made in the hearts
of his loved ones. Still his life deserves a tribute much greater
than can be painted by words or by pen, and the whole story
will interest the hundreds of friends who were fortunate enough
to know George Elmore. He had planned a trip to Oglethorpe to
spend the day with his mother, Mrs. J. S. Elmore. There was
a crash and he was pinned beneath the wreckage of a demolished
train and his life snuffed out. It is reported that a wheel
of the front truck under the white coach had broken and the
car was derailed just at the approach of a trestle and the car
tumbled into Camp Creek a distance of fifty feet. There were
six others killed outright, while seventeen were more or less
seriously injured. The body of Mr. Elmore arrived at Oglethorpe
over the Central of Georgia at 1:30 Monday and was taken to
the home of his mother, Mrs. J. S. Elmore. The funeral was conducted
at the Lutheran Church at 3:30 by Rev. Charles A. Phillips.
The deceased was thirty-six years old, and is survived by his
mother, Mrs. J. S. Elmore, and three sisters, Mrs. Mary Belle
Powers, Mrs. C. T. Harden and Mrs. W. M. English of Quitman,
two brothers, Eugene Elmore of Anderson, S.C. and C. B. Elmore
of Augusta. The remains were laid to rest in the Oglethorpe
