80 YEARS AGO---"Perhaps the most tragic automobile wreck yet recorded in this vicinity was that which occurred late Sunday afternoon on the Roanoke Wedowee highway at Rock Stand, where a Buick roadster, driven by Bill Swann, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Swann of Wedowee, en route home, crashed into a Ford touring car occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Kirby and their daughter, Miss Gippie Lee Kirby, who was driving. This car was coming into the highway headed toward Roanoke. The impact caused such injuries to the occupants of the Ford as to result later in the death of both Mr. and Mrs. Kirby, while their daughter was badly bruised and has since been paralyzed from the waist down, though reported slightly improved."
Lou died 9 November 1926 and the following day, 10 November 1926, Jack died. They are buried at White's Chapel Methodist Church Cemetery in Randolph Co, Alabama.
