I guess I missed something. I thought his death did take place in Bridgeport. I doubt he traveled far to go to work. Most factory employees lived within several city blocks of work since they usually walked. In any case, all the old factories in those days had many dangerous conditions that were considered perfectly acceptable by management. Factory elevators were poorly gated and it could have easily happened that he indeed fell down an elevator shaft. UMC in Bridgeport had the tallest factory building in Connecticut at the turn of the century and had very primitive elevators.
