Occupation* and George worked as a railroad engineer.1,8
Death*20 October 1891He died in a terrible train accident on 20 October 1891 in Monmouth, Warren County, Illinois, at age 51. The Galesburg Republican-Register, the following day, printed the story of the tragedy which took three additional lives and seriously injured 18 others. The train was running at a high rate of speed, and the facts showed that the switch was partially open on the side-track, causing most of the cars on the train to derail. Riding in the engine were Engineer A.A. Emery, Fireman Nels Anderson and George Courtney, the traveling engineer, who went on the trip to see how the new Locomotive worked. Anderson was blown from the cab by the steam, and survived. Courtney and Emery had no chance to escape, and their bodies were found close to the locomotive. A young man named Frank S. Johnson of Avon, who was standing on the steps of the smoking-car, attempted to jump, but was thrown under the wheels and killed. The fourth death was a young mother named Mrs. George Allen. She had been sitting next to the window in the first chair-car with her baby who survived. The scene after the wreck was said to have been heart-rending and panicky. Great surprise was expressed that the list of fatalities was not larger1,8
Burial* and was buried in Hope Cemetery, Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois.1
