My Grandpa Young Henry Berry was traveling by train with a load of wild mustangs, taking them from Abilene to Gibson Co., TN for sale, when the train wrecked somewhere in Hall Co. area and all horses were lost. Grandpa had minor injuries but great financial loss. I would like to find a newspaper account of that wreck. It was big news at the time. I have had researchers check through newpapers in some of the bigger Texas libraries but no luck, so far. Any suggestions? Are there any Hall County newspapers of that era in existance?
