Troop train accident, Censored????
I am looking for information on my Grandfather, Loren Alvin Cosner. Dewey was running for president and his Campaign train rear ended the troop train that my grandfather was on. He died asa result of this accident. There is no information on him anywhere, and my mother has nothing since she was raised in a Childrens Home after his death (partial Orphan)I know that my grandfather is buried in Portland, Oregon and that he died in 1944. I do not know where the accident happened, and I can not find a death Certificate for him either. Is this accident censored because it was war time, and how do I find information on him at all? The funeral home that did his service is no longer in business. Has anybody heard of this? I am believing that the accident happened between Washington and Oregon, but no proof. Can anybody help me find this person at all?
Thank you for any thing,
