Classification: Death
Surnames: Weems, Stovall, Nicholson
I remember when this family (mother, father, 2 young daughters) were hit by a train in Monroe, La, killing all four plus Clayton's sibling and sibs spouse. Two children survived, Neil(Neal)Weems, age about 10 and Carol Weems, age 15. These two became wards of their maternal grandmother,Nita Stovall Nicholson, and were raised by her in Metairie, La. It was on the 4th of July and the year was probably between 1948 and 1951. It was written up in the Morning World/ News Star and later Nita and her husband sued the railroad and won. My mother was Roline Stovall Deloach,oldest daughter of Logan J, Stovall,Dodson,La
