My gg grandfather Oscar Embody was killed/ crushed by a gravel plow (?) in a railroad
accident on June 9th, 1888 in Guthrie county, near Monteith, IA. His body was delivered to
friends and he was buried in Woodland Cemetery in Des Moines, IA on June 11th, 1888. From
what I can figure the railroad in operation may have been the Chicago, Rock Island and
Do you know of any newspapers in the Monteith or Des Moines area that may have printed a
story regarding the accident? I have hit a huge brick wall in my search for information
about Oscar and his family and would be very grateful for any help.
