I'm apparently not getting notifications of new messages on the Shelby County message board, since this is the second one of yours that I'm just seeing! According to the Dayton Daily News, the four people who died were in a traction car accident on August 11, 1908. They were William Bailey of Piqua, James S. Kehoe of Dayton, George Robertson of Sidney (he's buried at Graceland), and William McClelland of Lockington. There are rather gruesome descriptions of their injuries as well as the injuries of about 20-25 others involved. Plus they found a guy dead on a farm in Piqua around August 15th, and they think he may have been dazed in the traction accident and wandered several miles before dying on the farm (he hadn't been identified yet).
