A marker at the caboose is dedicated to the memory of Clarence Moseley “Ribs” Peel (8 November 1897-8 October 1955) and his wife Jessie Blackwell Peel (5 May 1907-18 October 2001). Mr. Peel, who was a trainman with the Southern Railway for 38 years, died in a railroad accident near Hazlehurst. After receiving information (which later proved to be incorrect) that another train was fast approaching his, he made the supreme sacrifice of staying with his train so that his co-workers could disembark and be safe. Mrs. Peel considered this spot hallowed ground as her husband spent so much of his career here. The moving memorial was placed by their children, Bettie Jane Rigdon, Claudine Peel, Juanita Goodson, Carlise Moncrief, and Claire Mattox, in 2010.
