There is a Thos W Palmer located in the Omaha City Directories from 1892 -1899. He lived near N13th and Burnett. He worked for the B&M Railroad in various capacities. I cannot find him in the 1900 census and suspect he may have died around then. He may be my great-grandfather. Any information or hints would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I do not have any information about your ancestor, however, I have a question on the B & M Railroad. Have you been able to find personnel record information anywhere? Have a relative Charles Smock who worked for the B & M Railroad in Omaha beginning about 1878. He also worked for the Union Pacific. I've had difficulty researching anyone who worked for the railroad.
Thank you. Rita

Rita -

I'm sorry but I don't have knowledge of any Railroad personal records. Many of my ancestors from Nebraska and Missouri spent at least some time working for a railroad in the late 1880s, but I have suffered the same difficulty that you have. Good luck in the future and thank you for responding. Collaboration is a most powerful tool in genealogy.
