January 30, 1919 "Toccoa Record"
A party of motorists, on coming down Dick`s Hill, discovered an injured man, lying by the roadside. When they had carried him to a nearby house, he revived enough to reveal his identity as Mr. Hite Beck, who had just moved his family to Toccoa, near Toccoa Cotton Mills, from Habersham County. According to his statement, he was returning to his former home, and as he was ascending the hill, was struck by an automobile, receiving injuries which proved to be fatal. The driver of the car did not even stop to ascertain the extent of his injuries. Mr. Beck was removed to his home here, where he died Sunday morning, and was buried Monday at Zebulon cemetery.

He is survived by his widow and several children, one son being in the army. On account of the destitute circumstances of the family, aid was extended to them by the Home Service Committee of the Red Cross, through the secretary, Miss Carrie Davenport, who solicited clothing and provisions from the people of Toccoa.

Finally a marker of sorts for you. You were taken so suddenly that you are almost a legend. But you are still my Great Grand Father and it is my pleasure to leave these flowers. I only wish it could be on your real grave. Rest in peace.
