On This Day In 1907

The tragic accidental death of David C Whitney at the age of 51. He was survived by wife, Elizabeth, and children, Ada, Charles, and Emmett.

The first article had most of his personal information wrong. C L Whitney was the name of his son who just happened to work for the railroad too.

In a strange coincidence Elizabeth’s brother, Alexander, would be killed in the same way 20 years later.
