Have very limited knowledge as I was a young child in 1959; only 7 years old. What do you need to know?

Thanks very much! We've been going through the newspaper archives in Houston and trying to contact family members of the 34 people that were killed in the crash. It is my understanding that the local paper might run a story telling people that we are looking for information. Right now we are trying to put together as many personal memories from people in the area as possible. This builds a cast of characters. In a book like this it is necessary in order to give the readers the feeling that they are there on Tuesday night, September 29, 1959, and in the days that follow. Any personal memories that you have would help.

Happened after I moved there, but I recall a rumor that there was a diamond courier on board & the local area was searched thoroughly for diamonds. Did not hear of any being found. Mike
