Stevens was superintendent of Wheatley consolidated schools and Mrs.Stevens was a teacher in the Goodwin schools. The son was a student in the Wheatley school. Mr.Stevens and the boy had gone to Goodwin for Mrs.Stevens, and the three were returning home. They had turned off the paved highway and started to cross the Rock Island to the old gravel route of Hwy 70 when the train struck the car. J.B.Hughes of Wheatley, who saw the accident, said the car was moving slowly, but the road was rough and he believed the occupants of the car did not see the approaching train. The car was dragged 300 yards before the train could be stopped. It is reported that Mr.Stevens had broken his glasses, and it is thought this contributed to the accident. J.Webster was engineer of the train and W.E.Jones the conductor, both from Little Rock. Rev.Henry J.King, rector of the Christ Church of this city and Dr.E.J.Money, a colored physician of Brinkley were among the first to reach the scene. Mr.and Mrs.Stevens taught at the Goodwin schools until the Wheatley schools were consolidated with them. They formerly lived near Chalybeate, Miss., and Mr.Stevens has a brother, Bryan Stevens, and his mother, Mrs.J.M.Stevens, living at Ripley, Miss. They had planned to move to Blossom on Thanksgiving day to live with Mr.H.B.Stevens. Mr.Stevens was a member of the Brinkley American Legion and recently named chaplain of the post. He was also a past Grand Master of the Bell Baxter Masonic Lodge No.228 at Wheatley.

12/31/31 GATLING JOHN WILLIAMS 4 28 1887 12 19 1931 CITY The body of John Williams Gatling, 43 years, was found this morning in the L'Anguille river this morning by a searching party composed of A.L.Stevens, John Threat . Russell Williams. It was found under a drift, about one mile below the new concrete bridge and a quarter mile below the iron bridge near where his car was found parked following his disappearance from home on Saturday, Dec.19. The body had not come to the surface but was first touched by Mr.Stevens boat paddle, and John Threat reached down and pulled it to the surface. It was en tangled with a mass of drift, near the middle of the river. The body had drifted to within 200 or 300 yards of nets that had been stretched across the river several days ago to intercept it. News of the finding was brought to the city by Mr.Williams and the body brought to Stevens Funeral home. The body upon investigation at the funeral home was found to have a bullet hole in the left of the heart and it is believed that Mr.Gatling would not have been able to do the shooting himself based on the angle of the bullet in the body. The autopsy found a 25 caliber bullet, performed by Dr.N.C.McCown and Dr.J.O.Rush, and the coroner's inquiry returned a verdict of death due to a bullet from an unknown person. Funeral services will be tomorrow, New Years day, at the Forrest City cemetery. Mr.Gatling's watch was found, and it stopped at 1:20 o'clock, and his knife was also found along with a five dollar bill and papers. No note or message was found. Mr.Gatling had left home en route to work at the Forrest City Grocer Co. when the disappearance came about.
