 Local Drownings

 
 
   

Through the courtesy of Rev., W. A. Lutz who went to the scene of the tragedy yesterday morning, and Mr. R. L. Bradford, the LANDMARK has the following facts. 

Mr. Fullbright lives in Shiloh township, near the river and near the Alexander County Line.  Mr. Goble lives in Alexander County, not far from Mr. Fullbright. 

Sunday morning five young ladies, Misses Sallie C, Odia and Nora E. Fullbright, all daughters of Mr. Fullbright; Miss Alice Miller, daughter of Mr. Shuford Miller and Miss Eliza Jane Goble, daughter of Jacob S. Goble left home to attend service at Bethel Lutheran Church in Catawba County. 

Mr. Will Fox took them safely across the river in a canoe.  After service, they started home and Mr. Ben Moose and Mr. Boyce Johnson, two young men inexperienced in handling a boat, undertook to put them across the river.  Misses Odia Fulbright and Alice Miller decided not to risk crossing; the others named got in the boat and started over to the Iredell side. 

The young men soon lost control of the boat and it was swept down the swift current over the shoals and into water 15 feet deep where it was capsized.  Misses Sallie Fullbright and Eliza Jane Goble were drowned.  Nora Fullbright, about 11-years-old, was swept back to the boat by Mr. Moose and clung to it until rescued by parties on the river bank.  The young men managed to save themselves. 

 Search was made all night for the bodies.  Yesterday morning at 9:30 Miss Fullbright’s body was found.  Miss Goble’s remains had not been discovered at 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon. 

Miss Fullbright will be buried at Sharon Lutheran Church today at 11.  If Miss Goble’s body is found it will be buried at Sharon today.  Miss Fullbright was 17 years, 10 months and 28 days old.  Both were members of Sharon Church and young women of fine character.  The accident was a most distressing one and there is much sympathy for the bereaved. 

Mr. Fullbright is a merchant and magistrate of Shiloh township and is well known in Statesville.

 Miss Goble’s Body Found

 
 
   

The body of Miss Eliza Jane Goble, who was drowned in the Catawba River at Lookout Shoals Sunday afternoon with Miss Sallie Fullbright, was recovered Tuesday afternoon about 3 o’clock.  The search for the bodies of the unfortunate young women was begun immediately after they were drowned and was kept up almost continuously until Miss Goble’s body was found. 

Miss Fullbright’s body was recovered about 9:30 Monday morning and the remains were buried at Sharon Lutheran church Tuesday at 11 o’clock.  Miss Goble’s remains were buried at Sharon Wednesday at 11 o’clock, beside those of Miss Fullbright, and the graves of both were covered with flowers. 

Rev. W. A. Lutz of Statesville, who went to the scene of the accident Monday morning, conducted the funeral services of both the young ladies, they being members at Sharon.  A large crowd of people were present at Sharon both on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The community is deeply stirred on account of the tragedy and there is much sympathy for the distressed families.

Miss Goble’s body was found by her brother, Mr. George Goble, about a half mile below the point where Miss Fullbright’s body was found.  Hundreds of people have participated in the search for the missing bodies, and after almost two days of continuous search, were about ready to despair of finding Miss Goble’s body.  Her brother, however, was determined that his sister’s remains should be found, and he was on the river in a canoe when he saw her clothes floating in the water.
