I'm in the process of putting together my family history. In doing so I found that my great grandfather was killed in the Chatsworth-Niagara Falls train wreck.

Hi Mary,
Thank you for this website! I was just made aware of it through a cousin's son who lives in Juno, Alaska. I'm in Chicago where a few generations of us Hickeys call home. My dad and grandfather and great-grandfather were all Martin Hickey, and I know my great grandfather emigrated from County Clare, Ireland to Kentucky and then to Chatsworth. We noticed that in the article about the Great Trainwreck of 1887, Martin Hickey, home boy, was mentioned as he assisted in helping the injured (but he was about 10) and I think he was my great-grandpa. Although it was a gruesome and horrific event in history, I "enjoyed" reading about this piece of history that I heard of but not in such detail. Thank you again for providing this info for the rest of us! Happy New year, Kate (Kathleen)
