I am doing research on the wreck of Southern Railway passenger trains Royal Palm and Ponce de Leon on 12-23-1926 at my home town Rockmart GA. Road foreman Robert M. Pearce, running engine 1219 pulling the Ponce de Leon, was critically wounded and died the next day. Pearce was born 1879 in Rochelle GA (Wilcox Co.) and married Elizabeth Brewster 1908 in Polk Co. GA. Pearce was a resident of Rome at the time fo his death. He was an engineer on the Seaboard Air Line RR before going to work for Southern Ry. in 1912. Any relatives of Bob Pearce who might have a photo of him that I could obtain a copy of?
