The accident occurred in 1894 and the song was popular for many years. James Bobo lived in Shelbyville, Moore County and finally Tullahoma and was a prosperous merchant in Tullahoma at his death. We will also discuss plans for the parking at the Jack Daniels Barbeque. Volunteers are needed to park cars for the Barbeque. You do not have to be a member to help, family and friends are welcome. We will have 2 hour shifts and you are entitled to a choice parking place for your work, (and you also meet a lot of nice people). This is one of our major fund raisers and Ronald Spencer is our coordinator.
