Not too long ago I was googling around and came across an e-book or some other electronic files that had very specific information: dates, places, job descriptions for B & O RR employees. Some distant Linthicum cousins were included. The time frame would have been the 1850's and 60's.
I just found at this site
Berkeley County West Virginia
Early Newspaper Extracts http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wvberkel/newspapers_l.html...
more vague details about the deaths of a couple of these individuals and now I would like to find the Online B & O RR records again.
From other posts and googling my brain out I know you can contact the B & O RR Hist Assn but this was online and ready to read.
