The Trollly is a possibility.
As I said Inez only spoke of it once.
I tried to gather and save all the info I could.
But asking questions other times made her upset.
If you could find the article that would be beyond fantastic.
If you would want to be paid for getting me a copy or whatever that would be fine.
I've looked at everything I could find on the net.
I thought because of the deaths it would
show up somewhere, But possibly because it was a local event,
it did not warrant too much attention.
People important to family are often not
as important to the world in general.
I am in touch with Jims son, her nephew
who would also like to know what uncle
was in the accident,
He would be their fathers brother also.
We know there were several boys,
Orvil: Albert: Richard Oliver:
Ralph: Harry Elliott: Jeffery: + Marrion.
There was also a walter Arthur, but he lived
with mother Sarah even to the 1940 census.
And Clarence Orivelle, lived till 1963.
I give boys known middle names because they often used their middle names.
I know Harry b1899 lost part of his leg
it was identified in his 1917 draft registration.
But Inez had said he lost it playing hobo-trying
to jump on a train, when he was young and fell under it.
