Frankfort, KY Runover by Freight Train, Aug 1890

Courier Journal newspaper, Louisville, KY - Monday 4 August 1890


The Remains of Brakeman J. T. BOSWELL Sent to His Former Home at Clifton Forge.

The remains of J. T. BOSWELL, the brakeman on the L & N railroad who was killed a short distance this side of Frankfort, Saturday night, by being run over by a freight train, were brought to the city yesterday. His right leg was cut off just below the hip, and his arm was crushed near the shoulder. He had also received several bad gashes in the head, which alone would have resulted in his death.

The remains were taken in charge by Wyatt & Cralle, who prepared them for burial. They were then shipped to his former home at Clifton Forge for interment. The deceased was a single man, thirty-five years of age.
