Death: Jun. 29, 1937

"Purl Hemphill, 32 year old farmer was killed while working on the new highway from Jenkins to Silver City. Hemphill, with other WPA laborers, had just finished loading a truck with heavy rocks. As the truck started away with the heavy load, Hemphill, with some of the other men on the job, overtook the truck and jumped on to ride. As he jumped on the running board, his foot slipped and he fell under the truck, the wheels passing lengthways over his body. The driver noticing he had run over something stopped and found him dead."
