Re: [SC] Railroad Worker Willie DINKINS

Thank you for posting those links.

Looking at any available RailRoad information on my ancestors is like looking for a needle in a haystack for me.
I'll probably never find any information on an uncle who died before I was born. He was a resident of Plain Dealing, Louisiana, and worked for the 'Louisville Nashville Railroad'(where, I do not know).

He was killed on the job; caught between two cars when the brakes gave way...or something like that.
My mother told me she remembers the day it happened because her sister returned home after living in another state on the same day.

My grandparents received a benefit of $300.00 for his 'accidental death.'

I have no idea where to begin.
