Chatsworth, IL Train Wreck, Aug 1887
THE DEATH ROLL
The Official List of Those Who Were Killed In the Chatsworth Horror - No More Missing.
The following is the corrected list of the dead who were killed in the bridge horror at Chatsworth. It has been proved and corrected by Auditor USNER of the T. P. & W., and is believed to be full and complete. A press dispatch from Chatsworth says that Coroner LONG places the total at eighty, but this appears to be an error. He held inquest on the first seventy-one bodies named in the appended list, and the remaining seven died since the night on which the accident occurred. It is stated that a baby ten-months-old, the child of MRS. JONATHAN NEAL, of Louisville, Ill., was killed, but is not accounted for here. Auditor USNER says he has no knowledge whatever of this.
His list is as follows:
