John Jacob STEIR in Train/Car Crash

Surnames: STEIR, GOERINGER, VORATH
I am seeking information on my maternal grandparents John Jacob STEIR and Mary Marie STEIR (her maiden name was the same as his) who came to America in 1910. They were both born in Schillings, Russia, in 1889.They lived in New York, Goodland, Kansas, and eventually settled in Rocky Ford, Colorado.
Through the RLDS site, my cousin found John Conrad GOERINGER and Marie Katherine VORATH married in January, 1895, in Lauve, Russia.
They are listed as my grandfather's parents on his SSN app.

My grandfather, John Jacob STEIR, was involved in a train/car crash outside of Rocky Ford and was killed in the 1930s or 1940s. Does anyone have knowledge of this event? Any other information would be most appreciated. Thanks

Are you still looking for this information? I have the Steir family tree that my grandmother left me. I can help fill in blanks, i hope.

My grandmother was Golda (aka goldie) Steir she married Thomas Huldrick. Thomas was one of the sons of John Jacob and Mary.

Please let me know.
