I copied the following from the internet. Can anyone look up in the Newspaper to see if they give the names of people that were killed in this accident.
Thank you. Helen

On 27 October 1854 at Baptiste Creek, 24 km west of Chatham, Ontario, a gravel train sent out to shore up rail beds was hit by an express that was running 7 hours late. The accident killed 52 and injured 48 others, the worst rail disaster in North America at that time.
