F. N. Pavey, aged 37, of 416 Caddo Street, a crossing flagman, employed by the Texas & Pacific Railway, was run over and almost instantly killed by a string of box cars at the foot of McNeil Street yesterday evening shortly before 6 o'clock. According to the statements of eye witnesses and the evidence given at the coroner's inquest, the accident was due more to Pavey's thoughtlessness than anything else.

Pavey had just thrown a switch on one of the three tracks which cross McNeil Street at this point and stepped back across the middle one of the three when the string of cars struck him, knocking him down. Both trucks of the first car and one set on the second passed over his body. He was unconscious when the switchmen nearby reached him and died a few moments after being removed from beneath the car.

The engine shoving the cars was in charge of Ollie Grant, engine foreman; T.R. Mays, fireman; and W.F. Simpson, engineer, on Texas & Pacific engine No. 159, with S.L. Donohoe and K.Y. Burge, switchmen. The testimony of all three witnesses was to the effect that Pavey had thrown the switch on the third track after a string of cars had passed and had stepped back. Another string of cars was coming down the central track which he apparently did not notice as he walked on toward the track and stopped at the first rail with his back to the oncoming cars which were only a few feet away. R.E. Prudhomme, another switchman, warned him and reached out for him to pull him away, but as he did so Pavey stepped directly in front of the cars, which knocked him down and ran over him.

The coroner's jury absolved the engine crew of any blame for the accident, declaring that it was due the Pavey's own carelessness. The funeral will be held Friday at Bunkie, the remains being shipped by Roll Osborne...."

October 1910

Miss Gladys Peevy, daughter of Mr. C.H. Peevy of Calhoun, LA died at the Sanitarium last night, where she was taken a month ago in an effort to save her life.

She had fever for 130 days. Her case was one that baffled the skill of the physicians and the end finally came after many long weeks. The remains were taken to Calhoun on the early morning train this morning.

Miss Floye Peevy was born Aug. 30, 1877 and died of congestion June 15, 1901.

Thus passed from earth to heaven the jewel of another home.

Miss Floye joined the Methodist Church at about the age of twelve years. She was soundly converted at about the age of eighteen years, just previous to a severe spell of typhoid fever. This conversion took place in the quietude of the home near the hour of midnight. While Miss Floye was always good, yet her conversion left the divine stamp upon her. Her associates were unable to decoy her off into frivolity. The light of her Christian spirit was not a hidden one. Her last associated thoughts of each day were with her Lord. Her lamp upon the floor, her Bible in her lap, there she humbly studied the Word of God. In all my acquaintance I have yet to meet one more universally loved. Both sinner and saint seem to think it a high privilege to praise her pure, attractive life.

On the funeral occasion, though it was on Monday, the church would not hold the people. Each one was eager to pay their last respects. No pains were spared for her welfare here; no doubts can be had of her safety yonder. Oh, what a consolation this should be!

Dear loved ones, we can only point you to the Lord, who doeth all things well. He has blessed you with this pure, saintly life the memory of which should be power sufficient to anchor all her loved ones safe in heaven. God grant you the abiding presence of her dear Savior.-----Her Pastor, H.W. Ledbetter.

(Miss Peevy was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.H. Peevy of Calhoun and was espicially bright and promising. One of her teachers has been heard to remark that she had as bright an intellect and as sweet and charming disposition and manners as any young person he had ever met. In the school room she was always easily in the lead of her classes.
Her friends and the friends of her parents are deeply grieved at her sad death, and to her sorrowing relatives the News extends its spmpathy. � ED)

Additional Comments: Floye Dee Peevy is buried in the Calhoun City Cemetery near her parents Charles Henry and Mary E. "Nonie" Peevy. The dates above are correct.
