According to the story, while crossing train tracks, mother and daughter were sitting in the back seat of the car while their husbands were sitting in the front. As they went through the crossing, the car was hit in the side rear, killing both women. The men were injured but lived.
It happened in 1937 even though one headstone states “1936” as the death year.
Headstones located in the Mt Mitchell United Methodist Church Cemetery, Kannapolis, Cabarrus County, North Carolina.
