Greetings to all: I am seeking to find out if there is a complete list of the dead from the MUD RUN Train Wreck that happened in Mauch Chunk on 10-10-1888; I have seen partial lists in old newspaper accounts. My ancestor was Charles Wesley LENT b about 1834 Tarrytown NY, raised in Ashtabula, OH, moved to Cleveland OH circa 1880s; I believe he was somehow connected to the RR crew of the Lehigh Valley RR as I can find no connection to his family in the Catholic or Temperance groups of that time or ever (members were coming back from a Parade in favor of these groups). His obit in Cleveland states "died in RR accident 10-10-1888" and there is no OH death record, just obit, burial and probate. Where can I get a death record from Carbon Cp for 1888? Seems probable. Can anyone help? Thanks.
