COX, Frank - Frank Cox of Neosho, Missouri, aged 45, a son of Mrs. Elizabeth Cox and brother to Mrs. E.W. Cato, died Tuesday, May 9th following an accident which occurred at the foot of the Ginger Blue hill. Mr. Cox, an employee of the Missouri Highway Department, was driving a truck loaded with gravel and it is thought that the truck got beyond his control while coming down the hill. It turned over several times and Mr. Cox was thrown clear of the wreckage. He was picked up shortly afterwards by a passing motorist and rushed to a Neosho hospital where he died at 8 o'clock. Mr. Cox was well known to Gravette folks, having visited here many times through the years. The remains were brought to Gravette by the Haywood Undertaking Company. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Thursday afternoon, conducted by his pastor, Reverend Mallory of Neosho and was attended by a large number who came to pay their last respects. Burial was made at the I.O.O.F. cemetery. The deceased is survived by his widow and one daughter, Maxine, of the home at Neosho, Missouri; his aged mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Cox of here; two sisters, Mrs. E.L. Talley of Claremore, Oklahoma and Mrs. E. W. Cato, Gravette; four brothers, Fred and Mack of Oklahoma City, Charles of Prairie Grove and Earle of Tahlequah, Oklahoma and other near relatives. He has a host of friends both at his home and here who mourn his departure. The entire community unites in extending sympathy to the bereaved ones in their time of sorrow.

Funeral services for Frank Cox of Neosho, but a former resident of Gravette, were held last Thursday afternoon in Gravette. Cox, aged 45, was an employee of the Missouri state highway department and was killed on the Ginger Blue Hill on No. 71 when a heavily loaded truck he was driving plunged down the hill at a terrific speed, being out of his control. It turned over three times, pinning Cox underneath. He was horribly mangled and died that night in Neosho hospital. A widow and 16-year old daughter survive him.
