Thriller Thursday - Died in a Train Wreck

Deaths and Funerals

Robert Lee Metcalfe

The body of Robert Lee Metcalfe who was born in Lexington in 1864 and was killed in a train wreck Tuesday in Louisiana arrived here yesterday morning. A Louisville family expressed the belief that Metcalfe was a missing kinsman, but Mrs. Ella Dixon, 707 West Third street, and Mrs. Owsley Stanhope of Covington, viewed the body at the John Milward Funeral Home and identified it as that of their brother. Funeral services will be held at the grave in the family lot in Lexington cemetery at 3 o'clock, the Rev. Hayes Farish officiating.  The pallbearers will be Owsley Stanhope, W. P. Hegarty, Columbia Sayre, Robert Hughes, John Shephard and Jeff Page.

[Robert Lee Metcalf not Metcalfe was the brother of Virginia "Virgie" Metcalf Stanhope.]
