Janesville, WI Railroad Accident, Dec 1864

FATAL RAILROAD ACCIDENT.

JANESVILLE, Dec. 23.

A shocking accident occurred here this morning. As the wife of one of our most respected citizens, Mrs. E. H. Woodward, and Mrs. H. K. Whiton, were crossing the railroad track, in the city, they were struck by the switching engine, and so severely injured that Mrs. Woodward died in an hour, and Mrs. Whiton has suffered amputation of one of her feet, but it is thought she will live.
