Wayne County Outlook
26 Jun 1919

Tom Upchurch and his son Martin were drowned one half mile below Lock 21 on the Cumberland River. Monday afternoon while seining. There were five in the party and Alfred Abbott, who escaped, says it looked for a minute like all five would be drowned. The elder Upchurch was about waist deep when his son became strangled and Abbott grabbed him and started to the bank with him, his father became excited and rushed in causing them all to become rattled and it was hard work that Abbott was able to save himself and the two other boys.
