Sorry, but few names are mentioned in the section about railroads, and I don't find any of the ones you mention.
Do you have a Township where this man might have lived? Most of the history is broken down by Township, and there is no index which lists names of individuals.
Also, do you have even an approximate date? I have two histories of Coles County, 1879 and 1976. There is another from around 1905 but I don't have it.
