I am searching for information about William Meikle, who came to Nova Scotia from Scotland ca.1854 to work on the Nova Scotia Railway, and was killed by a train at Mount Uniacke, on yhe Windsor Branch ca. 1869-1872.
Any details would be greatly appreciated. This information is intended for use in a book, which will cover the accident in which he died.
His family received compensation of $300 from the Canadian Government.
