 Virginia News
 The freight train on the Va. & Tennessee Railroad ran off a few miles above Forest Depot, on Saturday last. While assisting in the effort to replace the cars on the track,
Mr. John Nuckols, of Lynchburg, an employee of the Company, was forced into an embankment by a detached car, and almost literally buried. He was extricated with much difficulty, but the injuries he received were of an internal character and have since proved fatal
 (No nuckols living in Luynchburg VA 1860, so unable to place this one)

Mrs Minnie Cunningham, wife of Grant Cunningham, of the Meadow Branch vicinity was found dead in bed Saturday morning at 2 o’clock. The deceased, it is said, had been in poor health for some time but her condition was never considered perilous enough to warrant medical attention. Friday evening she was not feeling so well and she was found dead that night by her husband. Coroner Brewster was called and conducted an inquest. The investigation revealed that death had been caused from a functional heart trouble produced by a systoma. Funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the Meadow Branch Church, Rev M J Wahl of Grafton officiating. The deceased is survived by her husband and seven children. Two children died prior to her demise. At the time of her death she was thirty-four years of age. (Minnie NUCKOLS was born 6/13/1889 in St Charles MO. And died 2/23/1924 in Jersey Co, IL.

CRASH Continued from page 1 CRASH continued on A4 `I guess we had a guardian angel riding with us.' NATHAN OAKMAN car-truck collision kills Roebuck man Head-on crash kills one and critically injures two in Roebuck. Michael Leonard Nuckols, 29, of 12402 Greenville Highway, Lyman, was heading west on Highway 29 near the New Hope Road intersection when he lost control of his car early Thursday, according to the Spartanburg County Coroner's Office. Investigator Richard Seay said Nuckols was driving at least 80 mph when his car drifted into the median. Nuckols overcorrected, and the car crossed back across the westbound lanes and ran off the road, went airborne and smashed into several trees. The car was demolished, and Nuckols was ejected. The accident happened about 2:55 a.m. Thursday. "It was impossible to tell if he was wearing a seat belt, it was that bad," Seay said. "It literally just cut the left side off." Nuckols was pronounced dead at the scene. Seay said he died of massive body trauma. Staff writer Chase Squires contributed to this report
