Chillicothe, TX Train Accident, Feb 1890


A Brakeman on the Fort Worth and Denver Crushed to Pieces

WICHITA FALLS, Kan., [sic] Feb. 7 -- Charles D. Kellar, a brakeman on the Fort Worth and Denver, whose home was at this place, was run over and terribly mangled by a freight train near Chillicothe yesterday. The remains were brought here last night and an inquest held by Justice Brown, but the particulars of the accident were not developed. The train men seemed to know nothing except that they had found the body on the track from which they had taken it a piece at a time and brought it back with them. He leaves a wife and one child.
