    50 YEARS AGO
    Thursday, June 27, 1963
    Mrs. Billy Gritton and her father, George Corley, were injured in a tractor-wagon accident Sunday on Ashby Road, just off Highway 62.
    Mrs. Gritton and her family and the Corley family were riding in a wagon, pulled by a tractor driven by Mrs. Gritton’s husband. They were back on the farm where they had gone to visit Mrs. Corley’s old home place. The tractor dropped into a sunken place, causing the seat of the wagon to slip.
