Fatal Auto Accident
Joseph Baker, of Whitten, driving a Chevrolet coach and accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Flossie V. Cox, and his granddaughter, Jean Cox, and also Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Agnew, son and daughter, after church Sunday started southwest of Whitten to the Baker home. They had gone about one and one-half miles and were going across the crossroad at the Benson cemetery when Miss Blanche Thatcher, accompanied by her mother, approached from the south to turn the corner to Whitten. The weeds and corn obstructing the view, they did not see each other in time and when they were almost sure to come together each tried to dodge the other. The Baker car was overturned, resulting in the instant death of Jean Cox, and bruising the other members of Mr. Baker's family to some extent.
The funeral was conducted from the Church of Christ Tuesday afternoon and interment was in the Benson cemetery.
