The following is in a 17 Dec 1908 hand written letter from Lina SIZER of Greenwich, Ohio, to her friend, Faye PATTERSON, who is teaching at Ingleside Seminary, Burkeville, Virginia.
"On Sunday evening, or rather Monday morning Will CRABBS, a nephew of Charlie THOMPSON was supposed to be crossing the B&O RR returning from seeing his best girl, was killed. The train stopped here for water and the engineer was out looking over his engine saw pieces of the buggy and some blood on the front. They backed up and found that Will and his horse had both been killed, they brought him to town and notified infirmary director H. G WATTS who knew him and notified his friends here. They took him to Indiana to his father's for burial.

Only Faye Patterson is related to my lines. I share this info in case it is of use to someone else.
