FATHER: Sterling Foster Price

John Sterling "Johnny" Price, born in August of 1942 to Sterling Foster Price and Elizabeth Davenport Foster. He attended a military school in Baltimore after the death of his mother and would spend summers at Whitehaven with his grandmother, Agnes Green Foster; aunt, Martha Foster and great aunts. In fact they doted on him. At the age of eight, he had his own outboard motorboat and was the envy of all the cousins. One rainy June night in 1954, just two days after arriving in Mathews for the summer, he was a passenger in George Reed Machen's pickup truck George Reed was only 16. They were driving on North River Road -- a very narrow curvy rural road and the truck skidded into the path of a tractor-trailer and both boys were killed; Johnny instantly. He was thrown through the passenger window which was closed. The first thought everyone had when they heard Johnny had been killed was that there had been an accident with the boat. I was absolutely crushed when I got the news. He had been one of my favorite cousins to spend time with in the summer he had seemed quite sophisticated for a young child. Johnny was buried beside his mother in Baltimore. His father never remarried and died in November 1982, in Baltimore -- he shares a footstone with Johnny.
