7 August 1904 Eden Train Disaster
One of our family stories is that my grandmother, father and uncle were survivors of one of the worst train accidents in US history - trestle washed out, large loss of life.
The only train disaster that fits the timeframe is the one at Eden, Colorado, on 7 August 1904.The family was on its way to NY from California for a trip to Scotland.
The description my Dad used to give fits what happened and nothing else within a 5 year period either side even vaguely approximates it.
I have found many newspaper accounts.Several have lists of victims, missing and only one has a rather short list of survivors - but my family is not listed.
Question: Where can I find a complete list of survivors of this disaster?
