I am seeking any information about an explosion on a passenger train in Sandford on January 19, 1906 which killed 21 people and injured several others. I have several articles from the Charleston, Illinois Daily Courier that detail a trial held in Rockville, Indiana in June 1908 when my great grandfather's half brother, John O. Lawyer, sued the Big Four railroad because of injuries received in the explosion.
I will be glad to share the articles with anyone interested.
