There were at least seventy-four people aboard Norfolk & Western Passenger Train Number Two the night of the Thaxton train wreck on July 2, 1889. Fifty-six of them were classified as passengers. Each person was individually researched for the book, and any information found is being added here to pass on that research and possibly help those that might be researching descendants that happened to be on the train. Some of this information is also included in Chapter 11, “Biography”, in Lost at Thaxton. If one of these passengers happened to be an ancestor of yours and you have more information to share about them, please use the contact form and let me know! – Michael
