Comments from our submitter, Mary Addesso -- Gram [Mary Tillett Knight Malbon] died on the beach near Wash Woods. There used to be a stumpy part on the beach between Sandbridge and Corolla. Gram was driving her Jeep when she had a stroke and hit a stump. Her jeep flipped end over end. She died 8 months after the article appeared in The Beacon. She used to pile as many grandkids that would fit and drive us over and we would explore the beach and back roads with her. I was named after her and was 12 when she died. I was given her beautiful engraved gold locket that she received in 1915.
