By Marilyn Fancher Jones
I am the oldest daughter of Mr. Fancher (Trapped in a Cave).
Tommy Jeffries was in front that day and went for help.
Upon hearing of my dad being trapped, Billy (Bill) Jones went to the site and stayed until Mr. Fancher was brought out, seven hours later.
My sister Glyna (Lile) and I simply held hands, hugged and prayed.
His son, Mike was 18 months old.
I was a Sophomore at Western, and from the emergency room at Vanderbilt, he entreated that I return to school on Monday.
Mr. Fancher today would have eight grandsons and one granddaughter. --Marilyn Fancher Jones Comments re article 76124 Trapped in a Cave The story of Mr Fancher and Tommy Jeffries
