Delphos train accident

I have been looking for this information! My father was a child whose family lived near the tracks when this train derailed. He vividly remembers the awful sounds that awakened everyone from their sleep. The wrecked train cars remained for quite a while in the area. Recently he showed me a photo with the wreck in the background, but could not remember the date.
Thanks so much for your research!
