Wilson Daily Times, 16 September 1921.
In the 1910 census of Wilson, Wilson County: on Viola Street, Bryant Mill laborer Isic Haggins, 23; wife Essie May 19; and son Alton, 1.
Alton Hagans died 8 September 1921 in Wilson. Per his death certificate, he was born 25 November 1910 in Saratoga, Wilson County, to Isaac Hagans and Ezziemay Farmer; lived on Hines Street; and worked as a grocery delivery boy. His cause of death: “instantly killed by auto struck while riding bicycle.”
So unfortunate. I never knew what happened to my great uncle Alton.
Such a tragedy. I can just imagine him, pedaling furiously on his way to make a grocery delivery, grabbing onto the truck to speed his work.
