I have found a Feb 2002 posting on ancestry.com posted by a Jeff Wilson mentioning a "fiery train wreck" which is said to have occurred in 1937 at an unmarked //railroad// crossing in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Total deaths/injuries not stated but is said to have taken the life of a "Le Grand" //Legrand?// "SLUSSER or SLUSSAR" - //age abt 56?//, Husband of Mary - father of Freida //Freeda?// //JOHNSON?//- //Family known to have been living in Ann Arbor Township, Washtenaw Co., Michigan, in 1920.//.

Any info appreciated. Also seek communications with any descendants.
