    1. [OHIO-RAILROADS] August Steffen, RR accident
    2. Kathleen Newcomer
    3. August J. "Gus", of Cleveland, Ohio, worked for the New York Central RR, according to his death certificate. He was only 51 years old, so was still working when he passed away in 1928. He had his arm torn off from the elbow down sometime between 1910 when he was a RR tender and 1920 when he was a RR dispatcher. According to family story Gus was given the choice of taking a medical settlement from the RR, or taking an indoor job (dispatcher) with the RR. He choose the job. Would there be any documentation of his on-the- job- accident? Thank you Kathy for the websites of Cleveland RR history. Kathleen N.

The family story was that he was given the choice of given a job in the depot or he could take a compensation. He choose to have a job indoors with the RR. He lived in Cleveland but I don't know what RR he worked for. He was employed by the RR (switch tender in 1910) and 1920 (dispatcher for RR). By the 1930 census he had passed away. I think the accident was between 1910 - 1920 because he had changed jobs within the RR during that time. I would like to know which RR he worked for, when the accident was, and more about Gus.
