The Times, Philadelphia PA front page, May 14, 1899. Coverage of the "Exeter Horror" train wreck of May 12, 1899 in Exeter, PA. My great-great grandfather - Charles Clay Leaf - was one of the victims. He was killed instantly; his friend in the seat next to him escaped with only minor injuries.

This picture is in a family album of my Leaf, Reddie, and Cattell ancestors. Many photos aren't identified, and this is one of them. However, on back it says: "Wenderoth, Taylor & Brown 912-914 Chestnut Street Philadelphia No. 50897" In the unlikely event that anyone can identify this child, I would be very happy!
From the 1940 Lehigh University yearbook. Charlie left college in this same year to fight in World War II. He flew missions for Canada, England, and the United States.
