BEN TALIAFERRO- AUTO WRECK VICTIM BURIED AT RISON Ben Taliaferro, Aged 20, of Tarry Meets Death In Crash Saturday Night. Ben Taliaferro, aged 20 years of Tarry was almost instantly killed about 2 o'clock Sunday morning when a car in which he and two other young men were riding left the highway and turned over into a ditch on Tamo Pike near Pine Bluff. He suffered a broken neck and died at once. Young Taliaferro, who was the son of Mr. and Mrs. M.M. (Mack) Taliaferro of Tarry, was driving toward Pine Bluff and in an attempt to pass a wagon, lost control of the car and was pinned beneath it when it overturned. His companions were uninjured but were unable to lift the machine from his body. An ambulance was summoned from Pine Bluff but he died before reaching the city. The young man was one of the most popular men in Lincoln county, and was a member of the Methodist church and the Eagles lodge. He is survived by his parents; one sister, Miss Mary Taliaferro, three brothers, Mack, James, and Sandy Taliaferro, all of Tarry and his grandmother, Mrs. M.E. Tolson of this city. Funeral services were conducted Monday morning at the home at Tarry and the body brought here for burial in Greenwood cemetery, this being the former home of his parents.
