Wm. H. Brewer killed train wreck GA 1926

Doing historical research on wreck of Southern Railway passenger trains Royal Palm and Ponce de Leon which collided head-on at my home town Rockmart GA 12-23-1926. Among those killed was William H. Brewer of Atlanta, baggage master on the Ponce de Leon.
Brewer was born ca. 1888 and began working for Southern Railway in 1926. At the time of
his death, he had a brother J. C. Brewer who lived in Rome GA, another brother Charlie Brewer of Chattanooga TN, sisters Mrs. W. H. Crow of Montgomery AL, Mrs. A. J. Tallent of
Chattanooga TN, and Mrs. W. S. Parker of Lafayette GA. I'm trying to locate photos of
all crew members involved in this tragic wreck. Any relatives of William H. Brewer who have a photo I could get copied?
