  1. Thank you for this story. My great aunt Kathleen Bartee Bishop and her 4 children were lost in this accident. They are all interned in one grave in Evergreen. I have recently started working on the advances in genealogy…digital form and have looked and looked for this story.
    I appreciate this. As a history teacher your daily dose of Alabama goes a long way in helping me include Alabama in my American History 10th grade lesson plans. Thanks again.

    1. I’m glad the stories are helpful.

  2. My husband O. J. Gast, was an infant. His mother had in in line waiting to go aboard, but missed the trip. She often reminded su ha they been aboard they might have drowned.
