Car Crash into Bridge Early Sunday Morning Killed Two Men—
Two men were killed while the car in which they were riding crashing [sic] into the west end of the Brazos River Bridge, just east of the Granbury city limits.
Highway Patrolmen Andy Sims and Allen Langston said the accident in which only the one car was involved, happened at 2:20 AM Sunday.
Dead on arrival at Granbury General Hospital were Fred Albert Bledsue , 26, of 3220 Orchard in Fort Worth and Wilbur George Allen, Jr, 23, of Atoka, Oklahoma. The Patrolmen theorized that Allen, a construction worker, was a hitchhiker picked up by Bledsue who was enroute from Ballinger, where he was working as a painter, to Fort Worth to visit his mother.
The bodies were taken to Terry Funeral Chapel and Mr. Bledsue was transferred to Shannon’s in Fort Worth. Mrs. Allen arrived Sunday to make arrangements for the return of her husband’s body for burial in Atoka.
Shortly after the accident Billy Edward Jones, 23, and George Barton, were injured when their car collided with a truck which was slowing for the wreck on the bridge. Mr. Jones was released from the Granbury General Hospital after treatment for abrasions and Mr. Barton remained in the hospital with a broken arm, several broken ribs, and severe bruises.

Bob Bohannon Dies of Heart Ailment After Brief Illness

Rites Set Friday  For Long-Time  TP&L Employee   Bob Bohannon, 84, 220 Cherry Street, known to his many friends as "Uncle Bob," died at the Medical and
Surgical hospital at 5:10 o'clock 1956 of a heart ailment. Bohannon had been taken to the hospital Tuesday.

He was never involved in a lost-time accident.  In his early employment with the power companies Bohannon learned to do everything-set poles, string wires, install lights and equipment, operate generators and did a bit of office work.  During the latter years of employment with the Texas Power & Light Co., he was in charge of the sub-station on Cherry Street, just south of his home.  With the installation of automatic equipment, "Uncle Bob" duties had grown lighter through the years but he continued to put in a full eight hours a day on the job.  He was fi rst married to the late Miss Ella Thomas, who preceded him in death some 30 years ago. A few years after her death, he married Mrs. Mary Box, who died in August 1955.  He was a long-time member of the First Baptist church of Bonham and attended services regularly.

Survivors are five brothers, Jim Bohannon and Tom Bohannon of Itada, ILL.; Joe Bohannon of Fort Worth; Green Bohannon of California; Barnett Bohannon of Colorado Springs, Col.; two daughters, Mrs. Flora Hamilton of Waco, Mrs. Florance Hamilton of Austin; two sons, Frank Bohannon of Dallas, Fred Bohannon of Big Spring and seven stepchildren, Bill Box and Coy Box of Bonham, Mrs. Pansy Watson, of Bonham, Mrs. Thelma Gist of Houston, Mrs. Vera Chesser of Whitewright, Mrs. Robert Brinton of Dallas, and Mrs. Claude Strickland of Savoy and a large number of grandchildren.  Active pallbearers will be J.
